With all the hype surrounding Euromillions and the American Powerball lottery you could be forgiven for overlooking the very healthy Oz Powerball jackpot! This Australian lottery has quietly climbed to 3rd position on the PlayHugeLottos.com jackpot leader board.
The Australian Olympic team may currently be sitting in 9th on the Games medal count with 1 Gold medal, 3 Silver medal and 2 bronze medals but one of their national Lottery games, the Oz Powerball, is fast becoming one of the biggest lottery jackpots available in the world.
For those that hadn’t noticed, perhaps due to the current massive Euromillions and American Powerball jackpots, the Oz Powerball jackpot is now sitting at an impressive $51,400,000.00 USD. It is not quite record-breaking territory for this Australian lottery but it’s getting close.
The biggest jackpot ever won on the Australian Powerball is $84,000,000.00 USD. This massive lottery prize from down under was won back in July 2009 and was shared by two very happy ticket holders. At the time it was the biggest jackpot ever won in Australia but the record didn’t stand for very long as another Australian lottery, the Oz Lotto, quickly surpassed it with a $106 million jackpot.
Three Big Jackpots In A Row
Oz Powerball fits in very comfortably between Wednesday night’s USA Powerball draw and the massive (that might be an understatement) Euromillions draw on Friday night. If you play Wednesday, Thursday and Friday you will have played the 3 biggest lottery jackpots currently available in the world – standing a chance of winning some of the total $426,100,000.00 available. These kinds of opportunities don’t come around everyday so be sure to make the most of them.
Will Oz Powerball roll over again this Thursday or will YOU take home the jackpot? Remember: you have to be in it, to win it!
