There are seven prize divisions in Powerball, in addition to those available in the New Zealand Lotto draw. The jackpot is a minimum $4 million and is won by matching all six main numbers and the Powerball.

If the jackpot is not won then it rolls over to the next draw and this keeps happening until either there is a winner or the jackpot reaches $50 million. When this limit is reached, a 'Must Be Won' draw is held and, if no player matches the six main numbers and the Powerball, the jackpot is rolled down and shared among winners in the next prize division.
The first time the jackpot reached $50 million was on 29th February 2020, setting a new record for the largest prize in NZ Powerball. The ‘Must Be Won’ jackpot was shared between two players from Auckland. For more information about winners, visit the New Zealand Powerball Winners page.
