It may still only be the early days of 2022, but Powerball has surged into the year, offering an incredible $80 million for next Thursday’s draw (13 January 2022).

Powerball’s $80 million jackpot comes after no entry had all the seven winning numbers and the all-important Powerball number needed to take home division one tonight.

Although the division one prize wasn’t snagged this evening, a total of X prizes worth more than $X million were won in divisions two to nine. 

This includes X division two winners, who were just one number shy of a multi-million-dollar win, but each take home $X.

Last year, we saw the $80 million jackpot won on three occasions. In April an $80 million jackpot was shared by two New South Wales players who won $40 million each.

Then in August, a Victorian man walked away with the entire prize making him the state’s biggest individual lottery winner.

And the most recent $80 million jackpot was won just last month by 55 women from a Western Australian gym. 

We can imagine all those players started 2022 with exciting plans for the future. That could also be the reality for one or more player if they collect next week’s $80 million jackpot.

It’s going to be busy leading up to this huge draw, with one in four Australian adults to have an entry, so make sure you get in early to avoid the late rush. 

If you want to find out immediately if you’re a division one winner, register your entry so we can give you a call straight after the draw to break that life-changing news.

The winning numbers in Powerball draw XX on Thursday 6 January 2022 were XXXXX. The all-important Powerball number was XXX.
