South African Powerball is one of the games offered by the South African National Lottery and it was established in 2009 and people have been winning huge sums of money ever since. SA Powerball’s popularity stems from the fact that it has very good odds and big jackpots people cannot resist.
The record jackpot for Powerball is R102,016,000.00 which proves that the jackpots are really big , putting SA Powerball at par with the World’s leading lottos. The odds of winning are 1 in 24.4 which is very good if you compare them with the world renowned lottos.
Playing Powerball is not rocket science at all, players should choose a set of 5 numbers from 1 to 45 and a powerball from 1 to 20. In order for a player to win the jackpot, all the 5 numbers plus the powerball must be correct and if there is no winner, the jackpot rolls over to the next draw which means that the next draw will even be more bigger.
The draws are conducted every Tuesdays and Fridays and the minimum jackpot per draw is currently R3 Million. It is important to note that you can also win by matching 4, 3 0r 2 numbers even without the powerball but the prize money will obviously be lesser that the jackpot prize.
The South African Powerball is tax-free and you will not have to lose a great deal of money like other lottos. Furthermore, you have up to a year to claim your money and quite frankly, it is not everyday that you see such an organised lotto.
