Play Powerball Online
Powerball is one of the most exciting lottery games available in Australia. People play by betting on five numbers out of a range of 45 and selecting a single number from another set of 45 which becomes the Powerball digit. There are various lottery agents scattered within the mainland. But for those who want to avoid the hassle of going back and forth to these agents' locations, they may be able to play Powerball online.
There are various betting methods available for Powerball. There is the Standard method wherein a player simply selects five numbers and a Powerball digit. These numbers can be entered manually or by using a computer Autopick. The latter method lets the system decide which random numbers the player will be using for the week's draw. Another betting method to play Powerball online is called the Full System. This method lets players select more than five numbers to use in the draw. Up to 20 numbers can be used in the Full System method and allows all possible combinations to be matched with the selected numbers. A cheaper alternative to the Full System is called the Reduced System. The player may also choose more than five numbers except that there are limited number combinations allowed by the system. These selected numbers are jumbled to optimize the possible combinations.
There are 7 prize divisions which can be won by those who play Powerball online. The Division 1 winner must match all five winning numbers and the Powerball. This would land the player the jackpot prize. Division 2 can be won by getting all 5 winning numbers. Those who get four main numbers and the Powerball earn the Division 3 amount. For Division 4 winners, they need to match 3 main numbers and the Powerball. Matching 4 main numbers will earn the player the Division 5 prize. Division 6 can be won by having two main numbers and the Powerball. Lastly, the Division 7 prize can be achieved by getting three main winning numbers.
