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.
