Get ready Australia! Powerball soars to $120 million for first time
The second biggest jackpot in Australian lottery history will be up for grabs next Thursday, with Powerball rocketing to an incredible $120 million for the first time.
The mind-blowing jackpot comes after no players held a division one winning entry in tonight’s Powerball draw, prompting the jackpot prize to roll higher for the sixth consecutive week.
Next Thursday’s $120 million jackpot is the largest prize the game has offered for more than two and a half years. If one player walks away with it all next week, they’ll become the biggest individual lottery prize winner in Australian history.
While no player scored tonight’s multi-million-dollar jackpot tonight, a total of 2,612,173 prizes worth more than $47.6 million were won in divisions two to nine. This included 18 division two winners who each took home $73,329.70.
With $120 million up for grabs, up to one-in-two Australian adults were expected to have an entry into next week’s Powerball draw.
In September 2019, the game soared to an historic $150 million and we haven’t seen it climb past $80 million since… until now.
With such a massive offer on the table, we’re expecting people right around the country to be dreaming about exactly how they’d transform their lives if they won that prize.
And as a result, it’s going to be busy both online and in-store leading up to the draw, so make sure you get your hands on a ticket early.
We encourage customers to not only get in early but also to register those entries, so their prizes are secure, and we can contact them directly after the draw with the life-changing news if they do win division one.
Tickets can be purchased at any licenced lottery outlet, online or via The Lott mobile app.
The winning numbers in Powerball draw 1344 on Thursday 17 February 2022 were 24, 7, 34, 22, 13, 30, 6. The all-important Powerball number was 10.
