Get lucky! Powerball jackpot soars to record $100M next week

Powerball's top prize has soared to a record $100 million for the second time in six months after last night's jackpot went unwon.

With up to one in three Australians tipped to buy tickets to be in the running to snare the millions that are up for grabs, the Lott has revealed the winning entry types that scored Powerball division one prizes in 2018.

While the draw normally takes place at 8.30pm, yesterday the results weren't available until nearly 11pm.

Among Thursday's victors, there were 15 division two winners, who each took home a prize of $81,533.30.

But night got off to a shaky start as lengthy delays due to a technical glitch with the draw led to an agonising wait for ticket holders.

To win the $50,000, the player had to match four white balls numbers and the red Powerball number, the odds of which are 1 in 913,129, according to the statement.

The Lott spokesperson Matt Hart said next Thursday's draw has the potential to set a new record of its own.

Powerball draw 1182 closes at 7.30pm AEST on Thursday, January 10.

A $2 ticket gives you a one in 292.2 million chance at joining the hall of Powerball champions.

The numbers drawn Wednesday were 6, 19, 37, 49, 59 and the Powerball number was 22.

The winning numbers are 3, 10, 7, 28, 34, 24, 31 and the powerball 14.

Punters have been warned to avoid choosing numbers 1, 2, 4 or 18 because they haven't made an appearance in the last 18 months.
