Introduced in February 2001, the NZ Powerball game offers up grand prize winning on a weekly basis since its inception. At first the Powerball number was drawn from eight numbers, with a minimum prize of $1 million and a maximum of $14 million. The prizing has steadily been raised over the years to a maximum of $30 million, and by October 2010 the Powerball was changed to ten numbers with a minimum prize of $4 million.
HOW TO PLAY:
To Play NZ Powerball, select six numbers from a range of 1-40 with an additional number, the Powerball, from a range of 1-10. Players may choose their lucky numbers or select the quick pick automated option. There are an amazing 12 prize divisions to help players along the winning prize ladder.
The biggest Powerball group win was in the form of its first ever ‘Must Be Won’ draw on 18th October 2008, which boasted a top prize of around $30 million. Five players won and split the prize with each taking home winnings of $6.1 million.
When it comes to massive single-ticket, individual prizing, the largest ever prize is the one given away on September 28th, 2013. A total of $33 million was awarded to a lucky lottery player in West Auckland.
WHEN TO PLAY:
Powerball draws take place every Saturday, since it’s an ‘add-on’ to the Lotto game. The results for the game are therefore dependent on the Lotto winning numbers. Players therefore have ample time to get their selections in for the popular supplementary game. Watch the live televised draw and get your results every Saturday night at 8pm on TV2.
