For your chance to become a multi-millionaire and play by your own rules, play Powerball – Australia’s biggest jackpotting game.
Powerball is drawn every Thursday and offers a minimum division one prize pool of $4 million, but can jackpot up to $100 million and beyond!
How to win
Powerball is a game of chance drawn from two barrels.
From the main barrel, seven winning numbers are drawn from 35 numbers. And from the Powerball barrel, one Powerball number is drawn from 20 numbers.
There are nine winning prize divisions. To win division one, you need to match all seven winning numbers plus the Powerball number in a single game, but you can win a prize with as little as matching two winning numbers, plus the Powerball number.
How to play
You can play Powerball in-store, online at thelott.com or via The Lott app.
The first step is deciding if you want to play your favourite numbers with a marked entry or simply buy a quick pick and have your numbers randomly generated for you.
You might also consider a PowerHit entry that guarantees the all-important Powerball number.
If you’re a regular player, you can subscribe to Powerball. With a subscription, your entry will be automatically purchased each week, or once the jackpot has reached a certain amount. You can cancel or pause your subscription at any time. More information about Subscriptions is available here.
A Powerball draw closes at 7:30pm Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST).
