Powerball Plus

PowerBall Plus was introduced in the year 2015 on the 28th of November. It is a different and bigger version of the original PowerBall, a much-needed upgrade for the players as it gives them a second chance to win.

PowerBall Plus draws are done at 9 PM on Tuesdays and Fridays. In the game of Powerball plus, a player has to choose 5 main numbers from 1 to 50 and 1 powerball from 1 to 20. PowerBall and PowerBall Plus are two different games, even though the winning numbers are similar. The Powerball Plus can be played on the same board as the Powerball by simply paying an extra amount of R2.50. PowerBall Plus is not a super draw. Players get a chance to win it every week.

The National Lottery is run by ITHUBA holdings. A player must be at least 18 years of age to buy a lottery ticket, including the PowerBall Plus.

How to play

PowerBall has an optional add-on called PowerBall Plus, which can be played at a cheaper rate (almost half the price) as compared to the main PowerBall lottery. To play this, a player has to choose five distinct numbers from one to fifty and another ‘PowerBall’ number between one and twenty and see how many numbers get matched when the numbers of the draw are declared. There are nine prize divisions, the highest division being the jackpot, which is won by matching all six chosen numbers. Unlike PowerBall, players get a second chance to win prizes in the game of PowerBall Plus.

Price of entering a PowerBall Plus board is R7.50 (base PowerBall price of R5 + R2.50 for PowerBall Plus entry). The draw takes place on Tuesdays and Fridays at 9 PM.
