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.
