Powerball’s changed

More winners, bigger jackpots!

What's changing?


More overall winners

The odds of winning any prize will improve from 1 in 78 to 1 in 44 giving Powerball the best odds of winning a prize across all our Lotto games.

Did you know? A Powerpik ticket increases your chance of winning by automatically playing every possible Powerball number, guaranteeing you the Powerball! You can buy a Powerpik 7 for only $24. 
 

Bigger jackpots

We know you love big jackpots, so there’ll be larger jackpots and more of them. Stay tuned to see how high they’ll rise!

More winning numbers

The new Powerball game will be played by drawing seven Winning Numbers from a barrel of 35 balls, instead of six numbers from a barrel of 40 balls. The Powerball will still be drawn from a second barrel of 20 balls.

New prize division

We’ve also added a new Division 9 to the game, so there’ll be more overall winners in every draw. To win Division 9, you'll need two Winning Numbers plus the Powerball.
 

Pricing update 

To create more winners and bigger jackpots, the cost to play has increased from 85c to $1.10 per game (plus retailer commission). The minimum of two games will go up from $1.85 to $2.40. You can find the cost of each game here.

What about favourite numbers?

If you had favourite Powerball numbers saved, and haven’t already created a new set/s, you’ll need to do so in order to keep playing your favourites. Your old numbers have automatically been deleted as you now need to select 8 numbers in total.

If your favourite numbers are registered to your Lotterywest membership, you can create new ones via your account online. Simply login to your account and choose your new Powerball favourites.

If you’re not registered online, ask your local retailer for a new Powerball playslip and register your new favourite numbers in-store.

You can create your new favourite numbers from 6:00am on Friday 13 April 2018.
