Powerball launched in 1996 and has been going strong ever since. With the First Division prize starting at AU$3 million and often reaching eight figures - the lottery game truly has the potential to turn winners into multimillionaires.
In Powerball, there are two barrels of numbers. The first barrel holds the main balls, which are numbered from 1 to 35. The second barrel holds the Powerball, which can be any number from 1 to 20.
Taking place every Thursday night at 20:30 AEST, the main goal in this game is to match your numbers with the main numbers drawn as well as with the Powerball. The main difference with this lottery game and other ones is that there are no supplementary numbers in Powerball. Instead, there is a “Powerball” which must be matched in order to win the grand prize.
The chance of winning the First Division prize in Powerball is 1 in 134,490,400. However, there is a bigger chance of winning any other division prize with a single game, which is 1 in 44.
