Jerilderie has an instant millionaire in its ranks.

One lucky resident won a Powerball jackpot worth more than $5 million.

The winner bought the ticket from the Jerilderie Newsagency and wants to remain completely anonymous.

The ticketholder had a PowerHit40 ticket, which guaranteed the winning Powerball number and secured them an additional $238,925 in divisional prizes.

They won first division and other divisional prizes worth $5,238,925 in Thursday night’s Powerball draw.

The winner came forward on Valentine’s Day.

‘‘Love will no doubt be in the air, and with $5 million this winner could buy around 50,000 dozen red roses and some chocolate treats for their Valentine,’’ NSW Lotteries spokesperson Belinda McDougall said.

Powerball’s total division one prize pool of $10 million was split between two entries in Victoria and NSW.

Along with the entry purchased in Jerilderie, a 10-member syndicate from the Melbourne suburb of North Essendon won $510,000.00 each.

The winning numbers in Powerball draw 926 on Thursday were 34, 11, 24, 6, 8 and 13 and the Powerball was number 7.
