Going strong since its start in 1996, Thursday night Powerball gives you a chance to share in at least $3 million each week. The Powerball jackpot record is $80 million, which was drawn on 30 July 2009, and getting yourself a prize is simple! All you have to do is pick 5 main numbers and then 1 more number for the Powerball. If 3 or more of your numbers are drawn on the night, you’re a winner!
A Standard Powerball ticket lets you choose 6 numbers in total, and you can even get the Lotto site to pick them randomly! Playing a Power 45 entry costs the same as paying 45 individual games, and guarantees the Powerball for 1 game entry. For more options, System or Super Combo entries give you the option to pick more numbers to boost your chances of winning. For the greatest chance of a win, you can join Syndicates, which pool resources to increase the number of games entered.
You can enter Thursday Powerball from as little as $0.85. Tickets are purchased as either a single week or multiple-week entry. Multi-week entries permit one to use the same numbers for up to 10 weeks. This is handy for many people, as it saves multiple trips to the newsagent.
Each Thursday night, 5 numbers are drawn from one machine, with the Powerball drawn from another machine. If you get all 5 of the main numbers and the Powerball, you’re a First Division winner, with a share of at least $3 million! There are seven divisions of winners - more divisions means a greater chance of winning, so what are you waiting for?
