Jackpots Nearing Record Amounts
The Oz Lotto jackpot has been growing since a single player snapped up AU$15 million on 12th June. The run of seven draws without a winner has pushed the top prize up to one of its largest amounts in history. The record of AU$111.9 million dates back to November 2012, when four players split the jackpot.
The biggest Australia Powerball jackpot of all time was won back in July 2009, when two players shared $80 million. The current prize has been growing since 14th June. The game changed earlier this year to help create larger jackpots, with players now required to pick seven numbers from 1 to 35 plus a Powerball number from 1 to 20.
