There are nine prize tiers on offer on SA PowerBall, from which players can win a variety of prizes. The prize tiers are pari-mutuel, which means they are made up of a proportion of the prize fund and the final value of a prize awarded to players is dependent on ticket sales and the number of winners in that tier. Out of all the revenue generated by lottery ticket sales, 48% goes towards the prize fund, and that money is distributed among the different prize divisions as follows:
|Match||Odds of Winning||Percentage of Prize Fund*|
|Match 5 main balls + PowerBall||1 in 42,375,200||70.73%|
