Due to the rising Powerball jackpot, one fortunate Australian may walk away with $100 million this week.
Only four times in the 26-year history of the lottery has the prize gone this high: the first time this year.
Due to the fact that there were no Division One winners on Thursday, the jackpot increased to a record level.
The second-largest lottery win in Australian history would occur if a single player took home the whole $100 million prize.
‘We’re expecting it to be busy in-store and online in the lead-up to next Thursday’s draw since this is the greatest lottery prize [of any sort] we’ve seen in Australia since February this year,’ The Lott spokesman James Eddy said.
We’re certain that the majority of Powerball players are already daydreaming about what they would do if they won a portion of the enormous jackpot next week.
The vacation of a lifetime, early retirement, the ideal house, and all your other desires may come true.
The jackpot is also the biggest since February of this year, so it’s expected to be crowded in stores and online as Australians buy their tickets.
According to Powerball, close to half of all Australian adults are anticipated to enter the draw with a ticket.
Earlier this year, lottery organizers made clear the easy strategies, such as lucky numbers and places, that might raise your chances of winning the money.
The winning numbers that are drawn the most often from the main barrel are 17, 7, 2, 9 and 25. 31, 6, 33, 15 and 34 are the numbers that are drawn the least often.
The most commonly drawn numbers for the separate Powerball barrel are 19 and 3, while the least frequently drawn numbers are 18 and 16.
According to The Lott spokesperson Matt Hart, there have been six Powerball division one winning entries in 2022 that have won a combined total of more than $226.6 million.
In addition to the three victories in New South Wales, there was one triumph each in Queensland, Victoria, and Western Australia.
“Two-thirds of those winning entries were QuickPick, where the numbers are selected for you when you buy a ticket by machine.”
Syndicates, of which one-third of Division One winners were a member, had a strong year, according to Mr. Hart.
The one-of-a-kind Powerhit entry, which ensure that one of your numbers is the significant Powerball, also accounted for a third of the 2022 winnings.
Instead of traveling to the newsstand or waiting for Powerball to call you, Mr. Hart advised participants to create an online account so they could check their numbers immediately after the draw.
14 Powerball players from throughout the nation won more than $550 million in prizes last year.
