Powerball Skyrockets To A Whopping $100 Million Jackpot!

13 January 2019

The $100 million, matched only twice before, will be drawn on Thursday.

Lotto officials have let Australians angling for a piece of tonight's enormous $80 million Powerball jackpot in on the numbers that are most likely to be drawn.

Last night, one in three Australians took part in one of the biggest Powerball draws ever.

Despite there being no division one winners, a total of 2,467,864 prizes worth more than $44.1 million were won in divisions two to nine.

As Powerball tickets are valid for only one year from the drawing date, the big prize must be claimed immediately.

While it stresses that the Powerball is a "random game of chance" and "every number has an equal chance of being drawn", the Lott has still provided the goods by unveiling the game's most frequently drawn numbers of the past couple of months.

The winning numbers are 3, 10, 7, 28, 34, 24, 31 and the powerball 14.

There were no tickets sold with all six numbers in the latest drawing of the multi-state Powerball lottery and the estimated jackpot for Saturday's drawing is expected to grow to $96 million. The second "hot" number is 29, which was drawn 12 times.

The Lott spokesperson Matt Hart said next Thursday's draw has the potential to set a new record of its own.
