The Australian Powerball is one of the most popular lottery games in the country and offers several tiers of prizes in every draw. Draws take place on a Thursday night and in order to win the jackpot, or Division 1 prize as it is known, players are required to match six numbers drawn from a pool of 40, plus one Powerball number drawn from a pool of 20. Apart from the jackpot, there are eight other prize tiers; players can even win a prize for matching a combination of just two main numbers and the Powerball number.
