South Africa Powerball is not only the most popular lottery in South Africa, but in all of Africa! You won't find the highest jackpots here compared to American Powerball, but they are not bad at all, especially since the odds of winning are a lot higher. And that's certainly worth exploring!
This lottery uses a very similar format as the one you most likely recognize from American Powerball. However, this double matrix format has fewer balls - 50 in the main drum and 20 in the secondary drum, which means your odds of winning are greater!
The draws take place on Tue 19:00 & Fri 19:00.
When you play South Africa Powerball, there are no limits to how many times the jackpot can roll over. Pretty good news since this means that the big prize will keep growing until a lucky winner matches all the numbers.
But, a surprising feature is that other prizes roll down to the next prize tier if no one claims the win. That means that you have a chance of winning some great prizes, even if you don't match all the numbers. If no one claims a secondary prize, it rolls down to the next tier up.
Jackpot of the next draw is €300,000.
