Oz Powerball statistics

Powerball is a lottery game modelled on the highly successful American game. The game is administered by Tattersalls, and syndicated to all states through the Australian Lotto Bloc. Draws take place on Thursday nights, with the first draw held on 23 May 1996. Each game costs 65 cents plus agent's commission, with most states requiring standard games be bought two at a time.

Powerball uses two barrels to determine its winning numbers: five numbers are drawn at random from a barrel of 45 (standard winning numbers), then one number, the namesake Powerball, is drawn at random from a separate barrel of 45. To win first division the player needs to have all five numbers in their game as well as select the correct ball. For coupon entries; the ball is selected in a separate box to the winning numbers. In an automated pick a computer randomly allocates the player five numbers as well as a ballfor each game line.

Lottery offers a slightly better odds overall for winning any prize than Saturday Lotto, partly due to its seven-division structure, however its first division is about six times harder to win:
