Due to the regularity of successive winners in the Powerball division, the jackpot prize hasn’t been able to climb too high in recent months, spokesman from The Lott Matt Hart explained before the winning numbers were announced.
‘However, that trend has changed in recent weeks, and now the Powerball prize has soared to $50 million – the biggest prize offered by any Australian lottery game since September last year,’ he said.
To win a division one in the Powerball Division, entries need to have the seven winning numbers and the crucial Powerball.
The winning numbers over the past three years, or those most frequently drawn are 17, 9, 2, 7 and 11.
The ‘cold’ numbers which are least drawn are 15, 34, 13, 33 and 31.
The most drawn Powerball is 19 while the least drawn Powerball is 18.
The Powerball 1929 draw closes on Thursday at 7:30pm, with the numbers drawn shortly after, with results expected to be announced at 9:30pm.
