Powerball draw wins the jackpot to raise $ 110 million after nobody claims the top prize – but nine lucky Australians are nearly $ 100,000 richer
- For seven weeks, nobody was able to score the lucky numbers to win the jackpot
- The jackpot has skyrocketed from $ 80 million to $ 110 million and is the highest prize ever
- Nine Australians won $ 91,728.90 during tonight's division draw
The Powerball jackpot jumps to a record of $ 110 million after no one has claimed the top prize on Thursday night.
No gambler has received the right combination of numbers to win big in the last seven weeks – and this week's $ 80m draw was no different.
Despite the jackpot flop, not everyone left empty handed.
Nine lucky gamblers won $ 91,728.90 during the two-door division.
Australians will crave to get a ticket if the jackpot rises to the top division, a prize that was once offered by a national lottery game.
In the past seven weeks, no one has been able to score the lucky combination of numbers and tonight's $ 80 million draw was no different
Lott's spokesperson, Matt Hart, said not only that next Thursday's Powerball draw set a new record for the country's biggest advertised jackpot prize, but it could also destroy another record.
& # 39; It would be amazing, but if a single winner takes home the full $ 110 million jackpot next week, it would be the largest Australian lottery prize ever won by a single entry, & # 39; he explained.
& # 39; The current record for the largest individual lottery win is held by a woman from Sydney, who won over $ 107 million in Powerball in January of this year.
& # 39; 2019 was already a turning point for Australian lotteries because we have seen and won a series of high jackpots. We can only wait and see how the rest of the year will look for lottery players, starting with next Thursday's draw. & # 39;
Now the jackpot has shot up to the highest division, a prize ever offered by a national lottery game
The winning numbers for the one jackpot division were 21, 27, 8, 6, 28, 34 and 7 with the Powerball number 16.
Tonight's draw was only the third time in Powerball's history that a prize had managed to reach $ 80 million.
The previous record for the Australian Jackpot's highest jackpot was $ 100 million, which has been offered only three times in the history of the game.
The first $ 100 million jackpot was via Oz Lotto in 2012, followed by Powerball in August 2018 and January 2019.
For those Australians who are lucky, the $ 110 Powerball 1209 draw will take place on Thursday, July 18.
