How to Play? 

Want to know how to play international lottery from Australia?

When you purchase an entry in our USA Power Lotto, the Lottery Office will purchase a matching ticket in the US Powerball lottery conducted in the USA.

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. Our USA Power Lotto has 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.

How the US Powerball drawings work? 

USA Power draws are held twice a week, giving you even more chances to win!

Winners are drawn on Wednesday and Saturday nights at 10:12pm US Central time (Thursdays and Sundays AEST), with the drawings taking place at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. 

Now the most important thing, where to see if you’ve won! You can check the winnings numbers on The Lottery Office website 24/7.

Can I use the Multiplier feature with USA Power Lotto? 

The answer is yes! 

  • From a pool of 43 balls, one is marked with a 10x, two with 5x, three with 4x, 13 with 3 x and 24 with 2x.
  • The ball marked with a 10x multiplier is only available when the jackpot is AUD$200 million or less. In this case there are only 42 balls in the multiplier pool. 
  • The second division prize with multiplier is always AUD$2.6 million.

If you win a 10x Multiplier with USA Power lotto it would take your prize money from:

 AUD$70,000 to AUD$700,000

AUD$40 to AUD$400
