Powerball is Australia’s big jackpotting lottery, delivering some of the biggest jackpot prizes the nation has seen. If you won Division 1 you could do almost anything. Imagine if you had the freedom to play by your own rules.
Powerball offers a minimum Division 1 prize pool of $3 Million and has delivered some of Australia's biggest jackpot prizes!
There are 9 prize divisions in Powerball. You can win a prize with as little as 2 winning numbers plus the Powerball number in a single game. To win the jackpot (Division 1) your entry needs to match all 7 winning numbers plus the Powerball number in a single game.
If there are no Division 1 prize winners, the prize pool jackpots to the next draw.
See our How to Win section for more information on how you can increase your chance of winning.
Powerball closes at 7:30pm (AEST) every Thursday night, and is drawn shortly after. The results are generally available on the day of draw by 9:00pm (AEST). Dividends for each game are updated following the draw and are available on the morning following the draw.
1. The first step to playing Powerball is deciding if you want to play a QuickPick or a Marked Entry.
2. Once you've decided which way to play, you can add more to your Powerball entry for more chances to win!
3. You can also choose how long you want to play for.
A Powerball Syndicate is where you play as a group to have more chances of winning.
With a Syndicate entry, you can pool your money with a group of players to buy bigger entries, which could increase your chance of winning. If your syndicate wins, the prizes are shared amongst all group members!
Syndicates can be set up in-store with the help of a friendly staff member or or you can start organising your Syndicate at home ready to play in-store using our SyndiMate tool.
Powerball winning numbers are usually available no later than 9:00pm (AEST) via the Lott website.
