A run of six rollovers means the Powerball Division 1 prize pool for New Year’s Eve will be worth a mighty $50 million. The total has been jackpotting since Thursday 12th November, when three ticket holders shared $70 million, each collecting a $23.3 million payout for matching all six main numbers and the Powerball.

    Thursday’s massive Division 1 prize pool would certainly help welcome in the new year in style, giving you another special reason to pop the champagne corks that evening. Your plans for 2016 would be completely changed by those seven lottery balls, allowing you to trade a money-saving staycation for a business class round-the-world trip and letting you swap that rusting old banger for a sleek new sports car.

    Your New Year’s resolutions would also be a lot easier to achieve thanks to a $50 million Powerball windfall. Most people want to shed a few kilograms after the excesses of Christmas, but soon find that they don’t have the time to dedicate themselves to fitness.  You could hire a top personal trainer to put you through your paces and bring in a Michelin-starred chef to ensure all your meals were tasty as well as nutritious. You might also want to think about putting someone on the payroll to sort out the washing up!

    If you need some help coming up with the perfect line to snatch this exciting top prize, make sure you use the Powerball Number Generator, which will pick a completely random selection of six main balls from one to 40 and a Powerball between one and 20, lifting the burden of picking them yourself from your shoulders.

    Powerball tickets are available at authorised retailers across Australia and you can buy them online wherever you are in the world. Click on the Buy Tickets page to see more information about how you could kick off 2016 as a Powerball multimillionaire!
