AU Powerball History

Australia’s Powerball is a relatively new lottery to play. The first draw happened on May 23, 1996, using the original odds of 5/45 for regular balls and 1/45 for the Powerball.

As one of Australia’s favorite lotteries, Powerball has changed its rules many times. The first change in format and rules happened in 2013. The change led to the drawing of six regular numbers from a pool of 40 balls and a Powerball from a pool of20. Also, there was the addition of the 8th prize division and an increase of 1oc for Powerball ticket prices.

Since April 2018, Powerball is now using an updated format that’s designed to more winners with bigger jackpots. Today, each draw requires seven regular Powerball Australia numbers picked from a pool of 35. And the extra Powerball is drawn from a pool of 20 numbers.
