About Powerball

Powerball is Australia’s big jackpotting lottery, delivering some of the biggest jackpot prizes the nation has ever seen. Imagine winning Division 1 and having the freedom to play by your own rules.

On a Thursday night, Powerball is drawn from 2 barrels. 7 numbers are drawn from the main barrel (numbered from 1 to 35) and 1 Powerball number is drawn from the Powerball barrel (numbered from 1 to 20).

  
   
   
 

Ways to Play

There are many ways to play Powerball. Check out the range of options below to see what you’d like try playing. To play a standard entry you need to select 7 numbers (between 1 and 35) and 1 Powerball number (between 1 and 20) in each game panel. 
 

1. Standard Entries

You can choose to play a QuickPick or a Marked entry. 

  A QuickPick is the easiest way to play, where the number of games you play is fixed and your numbers are randomly generated for you.

  A Marked entry lets you choose how many games you would like to play, plus you can select the numbers that are meaningful to you, and even save them as a Favourite for next time. You can play up to 18 games by marking a coupon in-store, or up to 50 games when creating your own entry online.
 

2. PowerHit Entry

  A PowerHit entry guarantees you the winning Powerball number. 

3. System & Pick Entries

System and Pick entries give you more chances to win, plus the chance to win across multiple prize divisions.

  A System entry gives you the option to play more than the standard 7 numbers from the first barrel of 35. You can choose from 8 to 20 numbers giving you more chances to win, plus the chance to win across multiple prize divisions. Learn more about System entries.

 A PowerHit System entry which not only guarantees the Powerball, but allows you to pick from 8 to 15 numbers from the main barrel.

 A Pick entry guarantees you either 1 or 2 winning numbers. Learn more about Pick entries.

 A PowerHit Pick 5 or PowerHit Pick 6 entry which guarantees the Powerball, and also one or two winning numbers from the main barrel.

4. Advance Entries

Once you’ve selected your Powerball entry type, you can choose the draws and number of weeks you'd like to play. If you're planning a holiday or don’t have time to buy a ticket online or in-store you can plan ahead and schedule your entry with an Advance entry, Multi-week entry or set-up a Subscription.

  • An Advance entry allows you to play your favourite game in a future draw, up to 10 weeks in advance. Learn more about Advance entries.
  • A Multi-week entry lets you play your entry across multiple draws. You can choose to play up to 10 consecutive Powerball draws. Learn more about Multi-week entries.
  • A Subscription entry allows you to automatically enter every draw or at a certain Powerball jackpot level and are a great way to ensure you never miss a draw. Learn more about Subscription entries.

You could start a syndicate with your friends, family or work mates using SyndiMate, our handy online syndicate planning tool. You can also join syndicates already set up in-store, and play with others in your local community. Find out more about Syndicates.
