Powerball Australia is the local version of the original USA-based lottery and has similarly attractive characteristics – a massive A$4,000,000 starting jackpot and 8 prize categories with a more favorable 6/40 and 1/20 drawing format. The only significant difference is that draws are once a week, but feature much better winning chances, so all is even and equally appealing.
Don’t get left behind, Powerball Australia does very well when it comes to record jackpots, its own contribution to this amazing list standing at A$76,000,000 back in 2009.
