Excitement is growing amongst New Zealand Powerball players after Wednesday's $34m Powerball draw again saw no jackpot winner.

This means that Saturday's draw on August 8th is set to be at least $39 million. Lottery outlets and ticket messenger services are now bracing themselves for brisk ticket sales in the build-up to the draw.

The biggest ever NZ Powerball prize was given away in November 2016 to a lucky Hibiscus Coast player who won a staggering $44.1 million.

Marie Winfield, Lotto's head of lottery communications, says "Winning Powerball has a huge ripple effect so many people benefit from that one little yellow ticket, the win is felt right throughout their communities."

New Zealand Powerball requires players to select six numbers from a guess range of 1-40 and an additional number, the Powerball, from a guess range of 1-10 and boasts an incredible 14 prize divisions.
