South Africa Powerball takes the ‘secret sauce’ of the US Powerball and uses it to offer huge jackpots and exciting secondary prizes to South Africans and online players worldwide.
South Africa Powerball is not alone in taking some cues from the US Powerball – Australia Powerball and New Zealand Powerball are the other 2 members of the international Powerball family inspired by the US Powerball. All South Africa Powerball prizes are paid out tax-free.
Powerball South Africa’s first draw was in October 2009. The highest jackpot ever awarded in the game’s history was R91,068,427, given to one lucky winning ticket holder on February 12, 2010.
How to Play South Africa Powerball
To play South Africa Powerball, a player must select 5 numbers from a guess range of 1 – 45. A player must also select an additional number from a separate guess range, the Powerball, from 1 – 20.
US Powerball has a similar play procedure. However, US Powerball’s 5 main numbers are from a range of 1 – 69 and the Powerball is chosen from a range of 1 – 26. All things considered, US Powerball is harder to win, but has higher jackpots.
Drawings take place twice weekly, on Tuesday and Friday at 21:00 local time. Purchase your tickets in person in South Africa or online from anywhere in the world.
