Despite all dreaming about what we would do with the money, no one claimed last night’s eye-watering $100 million Powerball, which means the jackpot will now soar to a whopping $150 million – a division one prize never seen before in Aussie lotto history!
The Lott confirmed late last night that there were no tickets holding the lucky numbers, prompting the jackpot to continue to roll for the eighth consecutive week.
It’s been revealed that next Thursday’s groundbreaking $150 million draw could be historic in more ways than one.

“If one single entry takes home the entire $150 million jackpot next week, needless to say, it would be the biggest Australian lottery prize ever won by a single entry,” The Lott spokesperson Bronwyn Spencer said.
“This would surpass the previous record by a mind-blowing $43 million.
“The current record for the biggest individual lottery win is held by a Sydney woman, who won more than $107 million in Powerball in January this year.”
While no one may have scored the big prize last night, a total of 2,760,732 prizes worth more than $50.23 million were won in divisions two to nine.
Among the winners were eight people who each took home a cool $173,767.85, having been just one number shy of taking home the multi-million dollar prize… ouch!
The numbers drawn last night were 27, 28, 10, 20, 11, 30, 31 and the all-important Powerball number was 2.
