If you're vying for the chance to become a newly minted multi-millionaire and the nation’s biggest ever lottery winner then next Thursday’s phenomenal $150 million Powerball draw is one you don't want to miss! 

The ground-breaking jackpot comes after no players held a division one winning entry in Powerball draw 1461. It’s the sixth consecutive draw without a division one winner.

The $150 million Powerball prize is the biggest jackpot offered by any Australian lottery game since February 2024 and the third-biggest lottery prize in Australian history.

While no entries scored the division one prize in tonight’s $100 million Powerball draw, a total of 3,197,881 prizes worth more than $64.37 million were won in divisions two to nine.

Among these winners, there were 10 division two winners, who each took home a prize of $179,059.50. These winners were just one number shy of taking home the multi-million-dollar prize.

It's undeniable that the prospect of winning a share of the $150 million division one prize will captivate the attention of countless Aussies in the coming days as excitement continues to build.

We expect a surge in lottery outlets and online as we approach Thursday night’s multi-million-dollar draw, with up to half of Australian adults expected to have an entry into the draw.

We’ve only seen Powerball offer $150 million on two previous occasions. In 2019, three division one winning entries shared the prize, while earlier this year, the jackpot wasn’t won and the prize climbed higher.
