Aussies keen to start the new financial year as a newly-minted multi-millionaire are eyeing this Thursday’s $60 million Powerball draw. 

On Thursday 30 June 2022, Powerball’s serving up the third biggest jackpot offered by any Australian lottery game so far this year! 

The jackpot has surged to $60 million as there hasn’t been any Powerball division one winners during the past four draws. And with this high offer, we’re expecting up to one-in-six Aussie adults are expected to have an entry into the draw. 

So far this year, nine Powerball division one winning entries across Australia have collectively taken home more than $311.2 million. 

If just one person snares division one in Thursday’s draw, they would be among the year’s biggest lottery winners to date. 

So far this year, our biggest Powerball winner was a Coffs Harbour man who wanted to park a new red sports car in the garage of a new house after we confirmed he’d won more than $63.3 million in a February.  

If you’re keen to know the latest winning trends for Powerball so far this year, then we’ve got you covered:  

Where the wins have landed 

While every entry offered the chance to pocket Thursday’s Powerball prize, there are some winning trends emerging. 

New South Wales players have enjoyed a stellar start to 2022, scoring five of the year’s nine Powerball division one wins to date. 

We’ve also seen two wins land in Victoria and one each in Queensland and Western Australia. Who knows where we’ll find our next Powerball multi-millionaire! 

One thing’s for sure, if you score Thursday’s $60 million prize, this year’s tax time will be one you’ll never forget! 

Winning entry types 

Two-thirds of the 2022 Powerball division one winning entries have been QuickPicks – where the lottery terminal randomly chooses the numbers for you. 

About a quarter of the year’s Powerball division one winning entries have been PowerHit entries – an entry unique to Powerball that guarantees the all-important Powerball number you need to win division one. 

“Hot” and “Cold” numbers 

The most frequently drawn winning numbers from the main barrel are 17, 7, 2 and 9, while the least frequently drawn are 31, 6, 33 and 34.  

The most frequently drawn Powerball number is 19, while the least frequently drawn Powerball number is 18

For anyone wanting the chance to win Powerball this week, make sure you have an entry in your hands before the draw’s close at 7.30pm AEST on Thursday night. 

As this is the biggest offer of any Australian lottery game at the moment, we’re expecting it to be busy in-store and online leading up to Thursday night, so don’t wait to grab your entry!
