New Zealand Powerball Prizes
The New Zealand Powerball First Division prize starts off at NZ$4 million before rising quickly through rollovers. When it reaches NZ$50 million, a ‘Must Be Won’ draw is called and, if no one wins the top prize, the whole lot is shared amongst the ticket holders in the next winning division.
With tickets costing just 80 cents, Powerball can be played alongside New Zealand Lotto and increases the value of any prizes won on the main game. In order to win the First Division prize on New Zealand Powerball, you must also match all six numbers from New Zealand Lotto. In October 2015, a new Powerball prize tier was created, granting those who matched three main Lotto numbers and the Powerball a fixed prize of NZ$12.
The biggest prize ever won by a single ticket holder in New Zealand Powerball was given away on 9th November 2016, when a couple from Dairy Flat won NZ$44 million. This total was the result of 22 consecutive rollovers and broke the previous biggest jackpot record of NZ$33 million claimed by a single ticket holder on 28th September 2013.
