With no one snaring division one tonight, Powerball has skyrocketed to a colossal $80 million for next Thursday’s draw – the equal biggest Australian lottery jackpot offered to players this year.

For the fifth Powerball draw in a row, no entry held all seven winning numbers and the crucial Powerball number needed to secure division one.

While no player walked away with the multi-million-dollar jackpot, a total of 1,874,111 prizes worth more than $33.4 million were won in divisions two to nine. This included four division two winners who each took home $231,561.65.

An $80 million Powerball prize had only been up for grabs twice before in 2021. 

We saw an $80 million Powerball draw in April and August of this year and on both occasions the massive jackpot was won.

In April this year, two New South Wales players shared the $80 million prize, walking away with $40 million each.

Months later in August, a North Melbourne dad scooped up $80 million when he held the only division one winning entry in that draw. Not only did he become Victoria’s biggest lottery winner, he also became  the country’s third biggest winner.

If one person scores the $80 million jackpot next Thursday night, they will also share the title of Australia’s third-biggest individual lottery prize winner.

Imagine how exciting it would be to be crowned the next Powerball division one winner! That mammoth prize would certainly allow you to play by your own rules.

We are expecting up to one-in-four Australian adults to have an entry into next week’s $80 million Powerball draw.

We’re nearing the end of 2021, and everyone is dreaming about what they might do in 2022 with a massive Powerball prize. So, we’re expecting it to be busy both online and in-store leading up to the draw.

We encourage customers to not only get in early to purchase their entries, but also to register those entries to a player card so their prize is secure. This allows us to contact them directly after the draw with the life-changing news.
