About South Africa Powerball

The US version of Powerball is one of the most popular lotteries in the world, and South Africa rolled out their own version of the game in 2009 with a smaller guess range.

Re-launched in November 2015, the South African Powerball now offers players bigger jackpots, improved winning chances, and an extra prize division.

While the South African Powerball jackpot may not reach the great heights of the US Powerball the odds of winning the South African version are much better so it's well worth considering.

To compare the number selection in the South Africa PowerBall is 5/50 + PB 1/20 while the number selection of the US Powerball is 5/69 + PB 1/26.

There are no taxes on winnings, and all winnings are paid in a lump sum (a one-time payment).

The South African Powerball jackpot always starts at R5 million and rolls over until it is won so keep watching!

Big winners include one lucky person who banked an incredible R145,469,799.30 (almost $11 million), for matching all the required jackpot numbers in 2018 and in February 2019 a single ticket won an extraordinary R232 million (€14.5 million) jackpot!

Amazingly, in June 2011, a winning ticket won R102,016,595 and no one came forward to collect it!
