How to play and win

To make a bet:

A line bet consists of 6 numbers from 2 separate pools:

  • 5 different numbers from 1 to 69
  • 1 number from 1 to 26, known as the Powerball

You can choose your own numbers or use quick pick to have numbers selected for you.

Bet options:

You can:

  • Add line bets to your bet slip.
  • Bet upcoming draws with the future draws option.
  • Boost your line bets up to 32 times.

To win:

The objective is to match the numbers for each individual line bet to the numbers drawn in the official lottery draw.

  • 5 main numbers are drawn and 1 separate Powerball is drawn.
  • Matching all 5 main numbers and the Powerball in one line bet wins the jackpot.
  • You can only win 1 prize (the highest matching prize tier) for each line bet.

Prize tier 1 (the jackpot) may be subject to an additional adjustment if it is paid all at once (lump sum) rather than in yearly instalments (annuity); the player may request which option they prefer. Lump sum payouts are subject to a further 40% prize reduction to be the same as the net present value of the 30 year annuity package. Approval of an annuity payout is at the sole discretion of Lottomart.
