2 min read

If you’ve ever wondered what exactly you need to win Powerball prizes, we’re here to help!

What are the Powerball Prizes?

The Powerball jackpot begins at $3 Million and rolls over each week if not won. While the jackpot resets after each Division 1 win, the game has seen jackpots of up to $150 million.

How to Win Powerball Prizes

In Australia, Powerball has 7 main numbers and a Powerball. The 7 main numbers are randomly drawn from a barrel containing balls numbered from 1-35. Meanwhile, the all-important Powerball is chosen from another barrel of balls numbered from 1-20. To win Division 1 you must match all 7 main numbers and the Powerball in any one game line. The numbers can be in any order – you just need to have them all!

However, to win any prize in Powerball, you just need to match at least 2 main numbers and the Powerball.

Winning combinations for all 9 Powerball Divisions are shown in the table below.
