Last Updated: Wednesday, 23 March 2016, 08:04am
Australia Powerball and Oz Lotto players will hope to enjoy a magnificent Christmas by getting their hands on huge cash prizes this week. The Australia Powerball jackpot has climbed to an estimated $40 million ahead of Thursday’s draw, while the top prize in Oz Lotto on Tuesday will be worth $30 million.
The Australia Powerball jackpot has been building ever since three lucky players matched all six main numbers plus the Powerball on Thursday 12th November to split $70 million, which was the largest top prize amount all year. There have still been lots of big winners over the past few weeks, though, with five ticket holders matching six main numbers in the most recent game on Thursday 17th December to pocket $102,958 each.
There have also been five rollovers in Oz Lotto since a single participant netted $35 million on Tuesday 10th November. Two players each snapped up $121,899 in last week’s draw after matching six main numbers plus a supplementary number, and ticket holders everywhere will be hoping to go one better next time out to possibly land the eight-figure jackpot.
