A chance to grab an eye-watering $80 million Powerball jackpot

Published: Wednesday, July 08, 2020.

This week's Powerball draw 1260 is a massive $80 million. And it is expected up to a quarter of Australian adults to have an entry in that drawer.This $80 million prize is the equal biggest jackpot we've seen from an Australian lottery this year. There was crowned one winner who collectively has taken home more than $189 million in division one prize money. Interestingly, three of those five divisions wins so far this year have been from Queensland. There was one from new South Wales and one from Victoria. So we'll have to see if that Powerball light continues to shine on Queensland on Thursday night or whether somewhere else in Australia might share that massive $18 million prize. The entries that share division one in Powerball so far this year mostly were Quick Pick entries. What we've seen so far from the Powerball division one winning entries of 2020 is that they've been relatively small entries of that 25 games or less.

It goes to show you don't need a big entry. You just need an entry for your chance to win the prize. No matter where you are or what type of entry you have, as long as you've got a ticket in your hand, then you're in with a chance to win the big prize. Last five weeks no one has won the First Division prize, letting it roll over and the result we have is the biggest jackpot offered so far this year and 7th biggest jackpot since the start of Powerball in 1996. The $80 million Powerball draw will take place on Thursday 9 July 2020, with the ticket selling closing at 7:30pm AEST.

The last massive jackpot landed to a Logan man in May. This lucky man won a First Division prize of $17 million. When asked what he is planning to do first, he said he is going to buy a new sports car. The biggest jackpot so far this year was won in March when a Port Macquarie man won $80 million. When asked the first thing he is planning to do, he said he is going to buy a new television with more channels to watch. So if one winner pocketed the entire prize this Thursday, he would become a second individual who had scored an $80 million Powerball prize. This winner would also become an equal third-biggest individual lottery winner in Australia. In the first place there is still a Sydney healthcare worker who won a $107 million Powerball prize back in January 2019 and another man from Chatswood who won a $96 million Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot prize last August.
