It looks like once again we have a major Jackpot on our hands as there wasn’t any winners in last nights $50 million jackpot. This means that next Thursday, 30/07/09 winnings has now jack potted to $80 million. That is unbelievable as it was only a couple of weeks ago that we had the $90 million super draw, and while this is a tad smaller, it’s still pretty good, so don’t miss out, get your PowerBall tickets  online!

Anyway, here are the winning numbers for those of you who missed last nights draw. I hope that even though you missed out on the big one you still managed to pocket some winnings.

The rules to the game is really quite simple. There are forty-five balls numbered 1 to 45 from which five winning numbers are randomly selected. A sixth ball, the “Powerball”, is then drawn from a separate machine containing another forty-five balls numbered 1 to 45.

The minimum number of games you must play in your Powerball entry is 2. You can play any number of standard game panels up to 12 plus up to 36 games if you choose a quickpick entry.

Powerball game prizes are split into divisional prize pools just as with the other lotto games. These run from Division 1 which is the top prize through to Division 5 which is the bottom prize. The divisions work as below:

  • Division 1: Get all 5 winning numbers from the first machine draw plus the 1 Powerball number from the second machine draw.
  • Division 2: Get all 5 winning numbers from the first machine draw.
  • Division 3: Get any 4 winning numbers from the first machine draw plus the 1 Powerball number from the second machine draw.
  • Division 4: Get any 3 winning numbers from the first machine draw plus the 1 Powerball number from the second machine draw.
  • Division 5: Get any 3 winning numbers from the first machine draw.

That’s pretty well all there is to it.

Luckily for me I don’t have to fight the crowds to buy a ticket, and believe me it’s going to get pretty bad out there, especially as everybody leaves it to the las minute. I’m taking the easy route by buying it my tickets online. This also gives me the added bonus of being able to check my tickets online as well. No more having to worry about making a mistake and throwing a good ticket away.

If you are not yet a member of Oz Lotteries, the mob I buy tickets online from, now would be a great time to join. The beauty about it is that it’s not limited just to Aussies, you Yanks and Poms can play as well. :) Oh, and last time I bought a ticket I was actually able to use PayPal to make the purchase.
