And the best news, as an Aussie you can play international lottery from the comfort of your own living room, with the chance of walking away a millionaire, or even a billionaire.
But what’s so great about US Powerball? Here’s the lowdown.

How it started

This year US Powerball celebrates 27 years in the business. Its predecessor, Lotto America, began in 1988, before changing its name to US Powerball in 1992.


In 1992 jackpots started at US$2 million, but by 1997 jackpots skyrocketed to a whopping US$10 million! Not a bad place to start hey!
Then, in order to deliver bigger and better jackpots and more winners, US Powerball made a few changes. This included altering the game matrix and adding features such as the Power Play and 10X multiplier. A win-win for US Powerball players!

To win a US Powerball jackpot you need to match all 5 balls from a pool of 69 and the power number from a pool of 26. We have the same rules. Even if you don’t win 1st division, 2nd division (5 winning numbers, no power number) is guaranteed at AUD$1.3 million. What a great second prize!
If a jackpot isn’t won, at least another AUD$13 million is added for the next draw.
There are 9 ways to win this popular lottery, and if that’s not enough, for an extra $3.45 you can activate the multiplier feature, multiplying non-jackpot prizes by 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10!
USA Power draws are held twice a week, the same as US Powerball giving you even more chances to win!


US Power ball still holds the record for the biggest prize in the world!
The biggest lottery jackpot was split 3 ways in 2016, with the winners sharing more than AUD$2 billion. Imagine what you could do with that amount of money!
