Bigger jackpots

Australian lottery jackpots don’t compare with jackpots overseas. The biggest US jackpot win was in 2016, when a lucky few players took out a huge AUD$2.3 billion US Powerball jackpot. Only a couple of years later in October 2018, another big win went down in the history books, when 2 players collected a massive AUD$2.2 billion US Mega Millions Jackpot.

Both US Powerball and US Mega Millions have a minimum jackpot prize of AUD$50 million! What a great place to start!
