$60 million Powerball jackpot: WA looking to make Lotto history

WA is looking to make Lotto history in tonight’s mammoth $60 million Powerball draw.

The largest ever WA win came more than five years ago, when a Perth family took home the entire Powerball division one prize — a whopping $50 million.

If there is only one WA winner tonight, that record will be smashed.

This is only the third time in 2020 Powerball has reached $60 million.

Lotterywest spokesperson Hermione Coleman said they expected to sell 450,000 tickets for this draw.

That’s almost one in every four Western Australians playing.

The busiest hour for sales is expected to be between 4pm and 5pm this evening.

“In light of this make sure you get your tickets early and beat the rush,” Ms Coleman said.

She said that some of the most popular suburbs for buying tickets were Perth, Morley, Mandurah and Cloverdale.

She recommended a Powerpik 7 or a syndicate ticket as great ways to get involved in the draw.

“A $24.20 Powerpik 7 is a great way to play because the ticket gives you the Powerball number that you need to win division one,” she said.

“Joining a syndicate and sharing the cost of the ticket, whether in an informal one in the office or with family, or an organised syndicate through Lotterywest or your local retailer, is also a really fun way to play.

“With $60 million there is more than enough to go around.”

An estimated $9 million will be raised for the WA community from this Powerball’s five-week jackpot run.

All available profits from Lotterywest tickets go towards the Lotterywest COVID-19 Relief Fund which support organisations and people experiencing hardship due to COVID-19.
