Australia Powerball Introduction

The Australia Powerball is one of the biggest lotteries Down Under, attracting the sort of attention and generating the sort of jackpots to be expected from a game based on the US Powerball. The Australia Powerball isn’t as well known or as widely played, but it’s a gem of a lottery that is becoming increasingly popular and attracting a wide range of players from all over the world.


The very first Australia Powerball was drawn in 1996, but it underwent a major shift in the Spring of 2018 in an effort to generate bigger jackpots and to ultimately lead to more sales and more interest.


How to Play Australia Powerball

The format of the Australia Powerball has changed slightly over the years and looks a little different now to how it did when it was first drawn. Originally, there were 7 prize tiers, prizes were paid to players who secured 3 or more main numbers, and the odds of winning any prize were 1 in 120. These days there are 9 prize tiers, the smallest is paid to players who get 2 main numbers and the Powerball, and the odds of any ticket winning any prize are 1 in 44.


The number of balls has also changed. The current format of the Australia Powerball requires players to choose 7 main numbers from 1 to 35 and 1 Powerball from 1 to 20. Tickets cost $2.20.


Jackpots and Records

For a long time, 9 years in fact, the record Australia Powerball jackpot was $83.1 million. This amount was scooped all the way back in 2009 and put all other Australia Powerball jackpots in the shade. However, this was beaten in 2018, when a jackpot of $100 million was shared between two lucky ticket holders.


One of these $50 million ticket holders is said to have kept his winning ticket in his wallet for two days, carrying it around with him everywhere he went, before he realised he had won!


Winning Odds of Australia Powerball

The Australia Powerball jackpot is paid to players who match all 8 numbers. That’s a lot of numbers, but because the range of possible numbers is quite small, the odds are far from astronomical. In fact, at 1 in 134,490,400, the odds of any ticket scooping the Australia Powerball jackpot are lower than the odds of major lotteries like the US Powerball, Mega Millions, EuroMillions, and SuperEnaLotto.
