Australia Powerball Lotto

The famed Powerball Lottery in Australia is a descendant of the famous, world-renowned United States Powerball lottery game.

The prizes are some of the biggest in the country and thousands of Aussies from East to West play the Australian Powerball Lottery with amazing jackpots, unbelievable odds and tax free cash prizes.

Australia Powerball History

The Australian version of the Powerball lottery game was founded in 1996 by LotteryWest, an Australian lotteries corporation created to raise charitable funding for communities in Western Australia.  Aussie Powerball offers residents of Australia big jackpots and great odds as well as opposed to its predecessor called the Midweek Tattslotto.

Australia is a very big country and there are many different companies that fund and oversee the lottery: Tattersall’s, the New South Wales Lotteries, the South Australian Lotteries Commission, Golden Casket and LotteryWest.  Proceeds from the Powerball ticket sales are earmarked to various community charities across Australia.

The biggest jackpot ever won in the Australian Powerball lottery game was in 2009 when $8.1 million was won.

On March 7th, 2013, Powerball Australia made some exciting changes to the game. In order to create bigger jackpots and more winners, they changed their structure and aim.  The new and improved Powerball Australia game features a number guess range from one to forty and a Powerball number guess range from one to twenty, leaving behind the prior 5/45 and 1/45 style. To increase the jackpot Powerball Australia decided that once the game has reached a jackpot of $10 million, an additional $10 million will be added to the prize pool each rollover. There are now eight prize divisions as opposed to seven making this game a vast improvement on the previous version.
