Looking for the latest Powerball results?
Congratulations, you’ve come to the right place! Oz Lotteries is your one-stop lotto shop. Not only can you purchase Australia’s favourite official lotto tickets online, but you can check the winning numbers shortly after they are drawn. Best of all, you will receive an email with your personalised ticket results following the draw, and a very exciting phone call if you are a Division 1 winner. But you probably know all that already and just want to know the winning Powerball numbers, right? What else is there to know? Well, read on…
How many Powerball numbers are drawn?
When Powerball is drawn on Thursday nights, there are 2 barrels of lotto balls. The first barrel holds 35 balls numbered from 1 to 35. The second barrel holds 20 balls numbered from 1 to 20. Soon after the Powerball draw closes at 7:30pm AEST, the barrels begin to spin and then it’s go time! One by one, the winning main numbers are pulled from the first barrel. Then, once 7 winning numbers have been selected, the winning Powerball number is pulled from the second barrel. It’s always an exciting time – you can even watch the Powerball draw live on TV to get in on the excitement!
How many Powerball numbers do you need to win?
The good news is you only need a minimum of 3 numbers to win – that is, 2 main numbers plus the all-important Powerball number. From there, each additional main number that you match on your ticket increases your prize. To hit the Powerball jackpot, you must match all 7 main winning numbers and the Powerball number in a single game (remember, your ticket could have hundreds of games, so you have lots of chances!). This combination will catapult you into the Division 1 prize pool and millions of dollars in Powerball winnings!
What happens if you win the Powerball jackpot?
Congratulations – you’ve won the Powerball jackpot! You’ve received a phone call from Oz Lotteries to confirm your win. Has your heart stopped racing yet? You should now be able to see your prize money added to your Oz Lotteries account balance (don’t forget to count those zeroes!). Now it’s time to take a breather for 3 weeks while we verify your identification and arrange to transfer your winnings into your nominated bank account. It can be a smart idea to notify your bank manager than millions of dollars will soon be appearing in your account – it may be hard to believe!
How can you increase your chances of winning Powerball?
So you didn’t win the Powerball jackpot. Well, did you know there are ways to have better luck next time? By playing a Powerball System or Syndicate ticket, you are able to play more numbers in more combinations across more games, and increase your odds of winning Powerball. Or you can choose a PowerHit ticket, which guarantees you will match the winning Powerball number by playing every possible number from 1 to 20 (in every possible combination with your 7 main numbers). There’s a lot more to Powerball strategy than simply playing a Standard QuickPick!
What happens after you check the latest Powerball results?
Whether you’ve won big, won small, or won nothing, there’s always another upcoming Powerball jackpot every Thursday. Why not throw your hat back into the ring? Here are the Powerball ticket options to kickstart your next entry:
