Can Aussies Get a Powerball Online Ticket?
Powerball fever is gripping the nation! Australian and New Zealanders are queuing up to find out how they can participate in the world’s biggest lottery!
This popular lottery game has created more than a few millionaires in its time, and the jackpots keep getting bigger. So if you need more reasons to play, allow us to justify why you should play our matching Powerball with The Lottery Office.
When it comes to massive jackpots, the world record-holding US Powerball stands head and shoulders above the rest. It’s configured for huge jackpots, with prizes that have reached into the billions on several occasions.
The US Powerball is officially the holder of the world’s biggest-ever jackpot in a national lottery.
In November 2022, an astonishing USD $2.04 billion (AUD $2.95 billion) was won by one individual!
It also holds the record for the second highest ever lottery jackpot. In January 2016, an astonishing USD $1.586 billion (AUD $2.2 billion) was won by three individuals who split the prize.
However, another glorious fact about the US Powerball is that you can get:
HIGH PRIZES FOR LOWER DIVISION WINS
The US Powerball’s strengths lie in its potential for vast prizes, not just in the first division jackpot but in several lower divisions.
Like the USA Mega Lotto, the USA Power Lotto and matching US Powerball have nine prize divisions in total, with winning a prize as simple as matching the single drawn Power number.
At the other end of the scale, the first division jackpot currently starts at a minimum of AUD $25 million, and the second division prize is worth an impressive AUD $1.4 million.
Aside from the jackpot prize, which changes each draw, all other prizes are the same every time and don’t fluctuate, unlike in most other lotteries. This lets players know which prizes will be on offer for each draw. In addition, there is a 1 in 25 chance that a given game will win a prize, meaning that the more games you play for a draw, the higher your chances of winning are.
LOW-RISK, HIGH REWARD
Powerball online tickets are available for just AUD $7, which is a tiny investment when the reward has the potential to be millions, or even billions!
US POWERBALL MULTIPLIER
The US Powerball also offers a unique multiplier feature, which allows non-jackpot prizes to increase by as much as ten times their original value.
When you’ve opted to add the Multiplier for AUD $3.45, non-jackpot prizes you win can be multiplied by up to 10 times! This means a division 3 win could be worth up to AUD $70,000 – a tremendous amount for division 3.
Before each USA Power Lotto draw, the Multiplier number is selected randomly. This process decides how many times non-jackpot wins will be multiplied by when players purchase the Multiplier option. The available Multiplier numbers are 2x, 3x, 4x, 5, and 10x.
There are two restrictions on the USA Power Lotto Multiplier:
- The 10x Multiplier is only available when the jackpot prize is worth less than the equivalent of USD $150 million.
- When won with the Multiplier, the second division prize will be worth USD $2 million (AUD $2.8 million), regardless of the Multiplier number that was drawn.
So, with all those great reasons in mind, what are you waiting for? Keep reading to review how to play USA Power Lotto matched to US Powerball and get your online tickets!
HOW TO PLAY US POWERBALL
When you purchase an entry in the USA Power Lotto, the Lottery Office will purchase a matching ticket in the US Powerball lottery conducted in the USA.
To win the equivalent of a US Powerball jackpot, you need to match all five balls from a pool of 69 and the power number from a pool of 26. We have the same rules. So even if you don’t win 1st division, 2nd division (5 winning numbers, no power number) is guaranteed at USD $1 million (AUD $1.4 million). What a great second prize!
If a jackpot isn’t won, it increases and rolls over for the next draw.
There are nine ways to win this popular lottery, and remember, for an extra AUD $3.45, you can activate the multiplier feature, multiplying non-jackpot prizes by 2, 3, 4, 5, or 10!
USA Power draws are held three times a week (Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays AEST), the same as US Powerball, giving you even more opportunities to win!
