THE AUSTRALIAN POWERBALL LOTTERY (OZ POWERBALL)
History Of Oz Powerball:
|The Australian Powerball was launched in 1996 with the very first draw taking place on the 23rd May 1996. This lottery was originally modelled on the American Powerball lottery and followed a very similar format. In March 2013 the game format was updated to incorporate a total of 7 numbers. The game uses 2 separate ball barrels and players must choose 2 separate sets of numbers – standard numbers and the Powerball

Oz Powerball Record Jackpots:
The biggest jackpot prize won on the Australian Powerball is currently AUD$80 million Australian Dollars. This giant jackpot prize was shared between two ticket holders, one from Victoria and the other, New South Wales. This record jackpot was won on 30 July 2009 and at the time was the biggest jackpot ever won in Australia. Shortly thereafter the Oz Lotto jackpot reached AUD$106 million and broke this record.
Changes implemented on the 1st March 2013 mean that the jackpot will increase in increments estimated at AUD$10 million once the jackpot has reached or passed the AUD$10 million mark.
Oz Powerball has a limit of 25 consecutive draws at which point, if the jackpot is still not won, the funds will be awarded to the second prize tier.
