They had bought the ticket from Tosh's Store on Chippendale St in Ayr in October 2015.
“It was all over town this morning that a $23.3 million winning Powerball ticket had been sold in Ayr and someone jokingly said to us that they think they had the winning ticket,” she said.
“My husband and I decided to jump on the internet and check our entry and we couldn’t believe it when we discovered that we had the winning ticket.”
“I have no idea what we’ll do with the prize money. I really can’t get my head around the fact that we’ve won. I feel like someone is going to tell me that it’s all a joke.”
