Quick Lottery Overview

The game gathered huge popularity in a short period of time thanks not only to its recognizable name in the lotto world, but because of its personal attributes too – a drawing format similar to its US granddaddy, but with better winning odds! To win the jackpot players need to match the 5 main numbers from 1 to 45, along with the Powerball – from 1 to 20. It all starts with a guaranteed top prize of 3,000,000 ZAR and as the rollovers aren’t limited, it only takes a couple of draws for jackpots to grow really huge.

The winning numbers are drawn twice a week – on Tuesdays and Fridays.

The Story of South African PowerBall

 

Lotteries in South Africa have quickly become incredibly popular, even though the country’s national lotto dates back only to 2000 when the National Lottery Commission was established. Recently, however, Powerball SA has been by far the most popular lotto game, thanks to its huge prizes.

It was introduced in 2009 and is currently administered by South Africa’s Ithuba company, which was given the operational license in 2015. In the same year, the prize categories were increased, giving better chances to players for a win, thus making the game even more attractive.

How to Play the Game?

South Africa national flag
 

Similar to the original US Powerball, this lottery features an exciting drawing format – to win the top prize players need to correctly match 5 main numbers from 1 to 45 and the Powerball from 1 to 20.

The jackpot is starting at 3,000,000 ZAR and quickly rolls over well into the 8-digit territory, making the game one of the richest lotteries in the country. The draws are on Tuesday and Friday evenings at 21:00 local AEST time. If the draw falls on a bank holiday, such as Christmas, it will be rescheduled.

Prize Categories and Winning Odds

 

Another great characteristic of the lottery is the generous prize payout structure with 8 categories. Since 2015, when the last division was added, players win a prize for matching only the Powerball, which creates better overall winning odds of around 1 in 20.

Upper prize levels represent various combinations of correctly matched main numbers and the Powerball, so, for example, you could win a nice prize by guessing 3 numbers, no matter if those are only main numbers or 2 main numbers along with the Powerball. Overall – it’s a greatly structured lotto!
