How Does South Africa Powerball Work?

The Basics

Modeled after the US Powerball, the South Africa Powerball utilizes a double matrix format. However, instead of completely copying its US counterpart, it makes use of a much smaller guess range. South Africa Powerball players must choose 5 numbers from a guess range of 1-45 and one Powerball number from a guess range of 1-20.

To win the jackpot, all 5 numbers, plus the Powerball number, must be matched. If you only match the 5 main numbers, and not the Powerball, then you win the second-tier prize. Just like other lotteries, the less numbers you match, the less money you win. Overall, there are 9 prize tiers you can win in—where the lowest requirement to win a prize is by matching only the Powerball number.

If no one wins the jackpot, it will simply rollover—and will continue to do so—until someone wins. Take note that rollovers only apply to the jackpot. For secondary prizes, they will simply roll down to the next prize tier if nobody wins. For example, if you to win the 3rd prize and nobody won the 2nd prize, the winnings simply trickle down to you.

South Africa Powerball Odds of Winning

Speaking of winning, your chances of hitting the jackpot are far better here than in bigger lotteries. You have, for instance, a 1 in 24,435,180 chance of winning the jackpot. Compared to the US Powerball and its 1 in 292,201,338 odds of winning the top prize, that’s beyond favorable! Check out the full breakdown of odd below:

So What Happens if You Win?

Should you be lucky enough to win in South Africa Powerball, there are some things you should take note of. For starters, all prizes are paid out in cash, so don’t expect any annuity options to be presented to you. That’s great because it means you can get all your winnings as soon as possible.

Here are some more things to take note of:

  • For winnings R2,000 below: Winners may claim their prize at any South Africa National Lottery outlet one day after the draw.
  • For winnings between R2,000 and R50,000: Winners may claim their prize at an authorized Prize Payment Centre, such as participating Post Offices.
  • For winnings beyond R50,000: Winners may claim their prizes at a South Africa National Lottery office. Winners must also complete a claim form and provide proof of identity.
  • Deadline: Winners must claim their prize within a year (or 365 days) of the draw lest their ticket become invalidated.

Take note that the guidelines above may not apply to online lottery players. Most lottery sites transfer most winnings to a player’s account, so you don’t really have to travel. Only those who win the jackpot may be asked to appear in person to collect their prize. Even then, that’s not universal—there are some lottery sites that offer to collect your prize on your behalf.

Powerball Plus prizes and odds

There are no fixed payouts for every division for every draw. They vary because of a different number of winning tickets every time. It depends also on ticket sales amount. There are two payout divisions guaranteed — when you match 0/5 or 1/5 both with Powerball. In the table below you can see what is the share of the reward pool of every tier when the jackpot is won.

Matched numbers Share of prize pool Odds of winning
5 correct + PB 54.46% 1 in 42,375,200
5 4.00% 1 in 2,230,274
4/5 + PB 2.50% 1 in 188,334
4/5 4.24% 1 in 9,912
3/5 + PB 4.80% 1 in 4,280
3/5 4.00% 1 in 225
2/5 + PB 3.00% 1 in 299
1/5 + PB fixed R 7.50 1 in 57
0/5 + PB fixed R 5 1 in 35

All Jackpot prizes are rounded to nearest R1. For lower divisions, prizes are rounded to 10 cents. As you see, this is a great second chance opportunity to win more. Always remember though, winning is very hard. So don’t spend too much money on gambling with lottery tickets!

PB Plus jackpots and rollovers

SSimilar to the main lottery — there is rollover happening quite often. Jackpot prize grows as long as nobody hits the 5/5 numbers and PB. Pool for 1 prize division is rolled over to the next draw’s corresponding tier.

  1. If there are no winners in division 2-8 (happens in 2nd from time to time) then the pool rolls down to the lower division, e.g. division 2 to division 3.
  2. If there are no winners in division 8 (not expected) then the pool rolls over to division 1 of the next draw.
  3. Breakage from any Powerball Plus division rollover to the same division next draw.
