Australians are getting ready to buy their tickets for Thursday’s $80 million Powerball, which is the second largest sum to be given away.
The Lott spokesman Matt Hart said that it’s likely one in three Aussie adults will purchase a ticket in the next 24 hours.
“The current Australian record for the biggest division one win by a single entry was a massive $70 million Powerball prize won by a Hervey Bay couple in 2016,” he said.
“Can you imagine how your life might change in 2019 if your bank account ballooned by an $80 million Powerball prize?
“With a multimillion-dollar Powerball prize of this scale, it’s fair to say you could well and truly play by your own rules.”
The draw for Powerball closes tomorrow night at 7:30PM AEST.
However, a law change means that nobody can place bets on the outcome of the lotteries.
This means you can only partake in Australian lotto draws, with the US Mega Millions and US Powerball now not available to place money on.
The law change comes as both US lotteries are taking action for it to be illegal to sell tickets for their lotteries outside of United States.
So, it just got harder to become a millionaire.
