Last Updated: Tuesday, 3 May 2016, 10:48am
Australia Powerball players will have a chance to win $40 million in the next draw on Thursday after a run of five rollovers propelled the jackpot to the highest amount seen since January. The last time someone landed the First Division Prize was on 24th March, when one lucky ticket holder bagged $30 million.
A husband and wife from Hervey Bay had previously won an incredible $70 million back on Thursday 7th January, matching the record for the biggest-ever lottery win on a single ticket in Australia. The couple now share joint honours with a single winning Oz Lotto ticket worth $70 million from December 2013. A terrific 2016 for Powerball fans has continued in recent weeks despite the lack of a jackpot winner, with over 415,000 ticket holders picking up cash prizes last Thursday. Visit the Australian Lottery Results section to find out all the latest winning numbers.
It is set to be a great week for Australian lottery participants, with the Oz Lotto jackpot for tomorrow’s game up to $15 million and more fabulous prizes up for grabs in games such as Wednesday Lotto, Saturday Lotto and Set for Life.
You might decide to stick to your favourite Powerball numbers this Thursday or try something new in an effort to get your hands on Thursday’s eight-figure Powerball jackpot, and it may be worth a look at the Powerball Number Generator, which will randomly give you a line in an instant. If you win a decent amount of money, you could consider a trip around the world, a new car or just a few generous gifts for your friends and family.
Tickets are available now, either from authorised retailers in Australia or online from anywhere on the planet, and you have to be in it to have a chance of netting $40 million. Best of luck!
