Australia Powerball

Australia’s Powerball is one of the richest national lotteries in the entire southern hemisphere and it’s drawn only once a week. That limitation is actually a strength—it maximises the prize levels for each game. The jackpot minimum is set at about Au$4 million for each game, and that amount is almost always exceeded.

This game bears a strong resemblance to the money-mad USA Powerball, but it has one significant advantage: Australia’s Powerball gives players much better jackpot odds. Australia’s Powerball pays out on 9 prize levels, and you can win a prize by matching as few as 3 numbers. The jackpot has risen as high at Au$80 million and could go higher still.
