Australia - Powerball Lotto Information

The Powerball Australia Lottery is based on the world-renowned USA Powerball, and attracts Aussie Lotto fans with great jackpots, attractive winning odds, and tax-free prizes.

Powerball Australia History

Powerball Australia Lottery was created by the OZ Lottery West company, a well-known Australian Lottery funder and administrator, as a replacement for the lottery known as the Midweek Tattslotto. Powerball Australia offered a bigger jackpot as well as higher statistical possibilities of winning than its predecessor.

The lottery is funded and run by different companies in the various Australian territories: the New South Wales Lotteries, Tattersall's, Golden Casket, South Australian Lotteries Commission and Lottery West. The proceeds from the Powerball Australia are allotted to different state government organizations depending where the tickets are purchased.

The lottery’s first official draw was held on 23 May 1996. Powerball awarded a AU$80 million jackpot in 2009, a record which held until a draw in August 2018 when two lucky players shared a AU$100 million prize.

Powerball Australia made changes to the game that took effect on March 7th, 2013. The lottery updated its structure and prizes with the aim of creating bigger jackpots and more winners. The new Powerball Australia game features a guess range of 1-40 and a Powerball guess range of 1-20 as the lottery leaves behind its previous 5/45 + 1/45 format. Once the Aussie Powerball game reaches AU$ 10 million, the lottery will add another AU$10 million to the prize pool with each rollover. In addition, Powerball Australia players enjoy more ways to win with a total of eight prize divisions, up from the lottery’s previous seven.

The Australian Powerball lottery introduced changes to its format in April 2018 in order to offer bigger jackpots and create more winners in every draw. The matrix of the main numbers was changed to 7/35 while the Powerball guess range remained the same. A ninth prize division was added and the overall odds of winning any prize in a Powerball draw improved to 1 in 44.
