- Starting jackpot of NZ$4 million
- Jackpot cap of NZ$50 million
- If that cap is reached, a "Must Be Won" draw takes place. If no ticket manages to match the six main numbers and the Powerball in that draw, the prize money rolls down to the next highest prize division with winning tickets
Lotto’s guaranteed jackpot is always set at NZ$1 million and the Powerball jackpot prize is on top of that.
How Does New Zealand Powerball Lottery Compare to the American Powerball
The New Zealand Powerball requires the same number of selections as the Australia Powerball (6+1), as opposed to the US Powerball which uses 5+1. However, the NZ Powerball distinguishes itself with its use of a bonus number and a 1-10 guess range for its Powerball. Although its jackpots are far smaller than the US Powerball, the New Zealand lottery does offer 14 prize divisions and fantastic winning odds!
