Powerball is Australia’s biggest official jackpotting lottery. With the biggest prize pool and thousands of winners each week*– Powerball could be your ticket to a life with no boundaries, no limitations and the absolute freedom to do it all!
Powerball is a game of chance drawn from 2 barrels. 6 numbers are drawn from the main barrel (numbered from 1 to 40) and 1 Powerball number is drawn from the Powerball barrel (numbered from 1 to 20).
Powerball offers a minimum Division 1 prize pool of $3 Million and has jackpotted to $80 Million in the past!
There are 8 prize divisions in Powerball. You can win a prize with as little as 2 winning numbers plus the Powerball number in a game. To win the jackpot (Division 1) your entry needs to match all 6 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 chances of winning.
Powerball closes at 7:30pm AEST every Thursday night, and is drawn shortly after. The latest results for most of our games are generally available on the day of draw by 9:00pm (AEST). Dividends for each game are updated following the draw and are generally available on the morning following the draw.
The first step to playing Powerball is deciding if you want to play a QuickPick or a Marked Entry.
Once you've decided which way to play, you can add more to your Powerball entry for more chances to win!
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!
Powerball winning numbers are usually available no later than 9:00pm (AEST) via the Lott website.
