$60 million Super Week kicks off with $40 million Powerball!

Lotto players have just hours to get their tickets in the second largest jackpot offered across the nation this year – a massive $40 million in tonight’s Powerball draw.

Although no player has managed to take home the multimillion Division 1 prize pool so far, almost 205,000 Western Australian players have managed to pick up a prize in the game’s other Divisions over the six week jackpot roll.  

If wins this year are anything to go by, WA could be in with a good chance to take out tonight’s $40 million jackpot with 12 Division 1 Lotto winners now sharing in $19 million worth of prize money.

One Lotterywest retailer who struck it lucky in February and sold a $1.5 million Division 1 winning ticket is Andrew Tran of Arcade News.

Mr Tran said his outlet was fast getting the reputation as the lucky place to be.

“We’ve delivered two Division 1 Lotto wins in five years and we think luck could strike a third time tonight,” he said.

“It has been a busy week with players picking up their tickets for both tonight’s $40 million Powerball jackpot and this weekend’s $20 million Saturday Lotto Superdraw,” he added

Lotterywest spokesperson Pina Compagnone said she expected Lotterywest outlets to be busy right across the State over the next few days with $60 million in prizes on offer.

“Lotterywest estimates almost half a million tickets will be sold across WA in tonight’s Powerball jackpot alone,” Ms Compagnone said.

“A further 700,000 tickets are estimated to be purchased for the Saturday Lotto Superdraw,” she added.

Tickets are available until 6pm draw day from Lotterywest in-store, online or through the app.  

Ask your local Lotterywest retailer for a $30 combo pack which will give you tickets into the $40 million Powerball jackpot, $20 million Saturday Lotto Superdraw, Super66 and Cash 3.

When you play Lotterywest games, the money stays in WA. Both the Powerball jackpot roll and Saturday’s Superdraw are set to raise a combined $10 million to support WA.
