 Rules of the New Zealand Powerball

The Rules of the New Zealand Powerball

Similar to other popular games in the Powerball series, such as the US Powerball or the Australia Powerball, the New Zealand Powerball features a set of main numbers and a bonus number, which is named the Powerball.

The New Zealand Powerball features six main numbers from a 1-40 guess range, and the Powerball from a 1-10 guess range. Players must match the entire main number series, as well as the Powerball to qualify for the grand jackpot.

The New Zealand Powerball jackpot has its starting amount set at NZ$5 MILLION, and the current jackpot cap is set at NZ$40 million, which means that when the prize reaches this amount, a “must-go” draw is held, just like the ones in the EuroMillions lottery. In this type of draw, if there are no players who have the jackpot winning numbers, the prize goes to the winners of the second-tier prize.
