Next week’s Powerball will have a record-breaking $160 million jackpot, after no one had the winning entry for the first division prize of $100 million in tonight’s draw. According to The Lott, if one person scores the entire $160 million Powerball jackpot next Thursday, they will also become the biggest Australian lottery winner in history. In early 2019, a Sydney nurse became Australia’s current individual lottery record-holder when she won $107,575,649.08 in Powerball.

The previous biggest jackpot in Australian lottery history was $150 million (also set by Powerball) in September 2019, but was shared between three winners.

While Australian lotteries have been conducted for more than a century, there have only been nine Australian lottery draws that have offered a prize worth $100 million or higher – eight of these have been offered by Powerball.

UPDATE 28/10: there were three winning entries in Thursday’s record $160 million Powerball draw, each receiving more than $53 million. The winners are from Victoria, NSW and WA (a syndicated of 20 people).

This is a step in the right direction, but there should be stricter time limits imposed on TV advertising… There were too many ads, betting “updates” during Nine’s NRL coverage this year for instance.

None of these investigations seem to be serious about taking the licences away, they’ve all given long runways for compliance

This is a rarity….

Of the 6 from 45 numbers drawn in tonight’s Lotto, 4 of them were 1, 2, 3 and 4 (34 and 36 were the other two).
