This lottery game is the most popular lottery game in South Africa which offers the biggest lottery jackpot. It has been run by the lottery company Gidani from April 2007 up to next 2014. The game is the latest traditionally drawn lottery jackpot game offered by the company using the twin matrix. The first draw was held on October 23rd 2009. The jackpot starts at the amount of R 30 million. The same as most other lottery games, the jackpot will then be rolled-over when there is no winner in each draw.
The twin matrix used in the game is 5-45 and 1-20 meaning that a player needs to select 5 numbers from a pool of number 1 to 45 and another number called the Powerball from a pool of number 1 to 20. A jackpot winner is the player who can match all those 5 main numbers and also the Powerball. The two pools are two different drawing machines that use lottery balls made from solid rubber.
If a player is not lucky enough to get the top jackpot, he will still has more chances to get at least one prize from 7 other categories of prizes. The odds to win the jackpot are 1 in 24.43 million and this is a very good chance indeed compared to many other lottery games in the world. The biggest chance of winning is at least to get the eighth level of prizes with the odds of 1 in 53. To claim the winning it should be within 365 days of the drawing time and the prize will be given in cash. The largest jackpot ever won was the one of an R 91.06 million on February 12th 2010.
Only those who are at least 18 can join the game by purchasing at the lottery ticket retailer in South Africa. However, for people outside the country can buy the ticket at the online lottery tickets available. One entry to the South Africa Powerball costs R3.50 per line.
The draw is held every Tuesday and Friday at 9.30 pm and can be seen live on SABC2. Because of its popularity, the results are also announced on other SABC channels, newspapers and some radio stations before 10 pm on the drawing night.;
