Australia Powerball Prizes
The Division 1 prize for Australia Powerball starts at AU$3 million but can quickly increase in value by huge amounts due to rollovers. The game rules changed on 1st March 2013 in order to boost cash prizes by changing the number of matched balls needed to win the Division 1 award and tweaking the pools for the main numbers and the Powerball.
The biggest jackpot in the history of the game came on 30th July 2009, when two ticket holders shared a Division 1 prize of $80 million.
Odds of Winning
Ticket holders must match six main numbers from a pool of 40, along with a Powerball from a choice of 20 in order to win the top prize. There are also other cash prizes available for players who match at least two main balls and the Powerball upwards to six main numbers.
