Australian Powerball Reaches $55 Million
Last Updated: Wednesday 4 January 2017, 09:36 am
Excitement is growing amongst Powerball players as a stunning First Division prize of $55 million hoves into view this Thursday. The colossal total follows six successive rollovers that have seen the prize pot dramatically increase ever since one lucky ticket holder scooped a $3 million prize on Thursday 17th November.
Thursday’s draw will see players compete for the largest First Division prize in almost a year, following a huge $70 million win for one ticket holder on the 7th January 2016. In that time, 15 fortuitous Powerball fans have claimed the jackpot, with five scooping totals in excess of $20 million. Any potential victor of this latest sum would become the maiden First Division prize winner of 2017, with ticket holders hoping it will be the first of many huge prize wins this year.
In the previous draw, eight players came close to landing a $35 million prize, missing out by just one number and eventually walking away with $92,300 apiece. Each and every player in Thursday’s draw will be hoping to go one better as ticket holders eye the massive eight-figure sum being offered.
With $55 million in the bank, any potential winner would see their financial worries disappear in the blink of an eye. The new year may only be a few days old, but 2017 would certainly look brighter with such a handsome sum to play with. That kind of cash would allow you to kick back on a sun-kissed beach, travel the world or splurge on a brand new designer wardrobe. The possibilities would be limitless.
To be in with a chance of winning Thursday’s $55 million sum, Powerball tickets are available to purchase online or from any authorised retailer throughout the country. Best of luck!
