Australian Powerball 7/35 + 1/20 - Bad news for players!


Australia Powerball changed to a new number format  7/35+1/20 on April 19, 2018, which now makes the Australian Powerball the only ‘8 ball’ lotto game in the world.

This increase in the number format to an 8 ball game ( 7/35  + 1/20) might be ideal situation for the lotto admin. company because they rake in more money from players by convincing you that the jackpot will be so much bigger with the 7/35 – 1/20 format.

 But it’s bad news for the average player.

 Let me give you an example.

 The odds of winning the first prize jackpot in the new 7/35 – 1/20 game format is one in 134,490,400.

 Previously, when the game format was 6/40 – 1/20   the odds of winning the first prize jackpot was one in 76,767,600.

 That means your odds against you winning a first prize jackpot have increased by 57,722,800.

 So why in the world would you ever play this game when the odds AGAINST YOU winning the first prize jackpot has almost doubled.

 My strong recommendation is, you are so much better playing any of the 6/45 lotto games where, even though the major prize jackpots are lower, your odds of winning are so much better.

 However, if you insist that you want to keep playing Australian Powerball, then be prepared to stay a loser.

Just a warning.
