Aussies buy 6000 Powerball tickets a minute chasing $80m prize

$250K Winning Powerball Ticket Sold In Michigan Expires Today

More than 750,000 tickets are forecast to be sold across the state ahead of the second largest jackpot offered in the game's 23-year history in Australia.

Last night, one in three Australians took part in one of the biggest Powerball draws ever.

The Lott explains that every entry must be validated before a draw can take place and with the sales closing at 8.30pm AEDT it is only after that time that each entry can be accounted for.

Among Thursday's victors, there were 15 division two winners, who each took home a prize of $81,533.30.

"It's not unusual to have a draw delay, particularly in large draws", Mr Hart said.

To win the $50,000, the player had to match four white balls numbers and the red Powerball number, the odds of which are 1 in 913,129, according to the statement.

Powerball draw 1182 closes at 7.30pm AEST on Thursday, January 10. Organisers blamed the high number of entries, with the whopping prize money prompting millions of games to be entered late on Thursday.

A $2 ticket gives you a one in 292.2 million chance at joining the hall of Powerball champions.

The winning numbers were 3, 10, 7, 28, 34, 24, 31 and the Powerball 14. The second "hot" number is 29, which was drawn 12 times.

"Hot" Powerball numbers include 3, 13 and 19, again each drawn four times, and the "Cold" 1, 2, 4 and 18 for the "Cold", which weren't drawn at all.

The Lott spokesman Matt Hart spoke about what the life-changing win would mean for one lucky ticket holder.
