Launched in December 2015, PowerBall Plus is a supplementary game to South Africa PowerBall that offers players the chance to win even more cash prizes and was introduced as part of several changes made to the game. PowerBall Plus draws are held shortly after the main draw every Tuesday and Friday night at 21.00 local time. The latest PowerBall Plus Results can be viewed on the dedicated page soon after the draw.
PowerBall Plus cannot be played separately from South Africa PowerBall. Players mark the "PowerBall Plus" option on their betslip and pay an extra R2.50 per line to take part. They can opt for a randomly-generated entry or select their own numbers - five main numbers from 1 to 50 and a PowerBall from 1 to 20.
