Why play Powerball on Betway?

If you play in a retail outlet or online through the official website, you'll have to spend R5 per board and PowerBall Plus costs an additional R2.50 to play. With a bookmaker like Betway, you can bet as little as R1 and choose to predict as many numbers as you like—not all of them every time.

Another big advantage of playing Powerball on Betway rather than buying a physical lottery ticket or using the official site, is that you won't have to share your winnings with anybody else. No matter how many other people pick your winning numbers, the potential return stated on your Betway betslip is a 100% guaranteed payout if you win!

How to play Powerball on Betway

To play Powerball on Betway you must choose 1-5 numbers between 1 and 50, plus a Powerball number between 1 and 20. The aim is always to match the numbers you select with the numbers drawn in the lottery.

To play on Powerball on Betway, you must open an online betting account if you don't already have one. When you sign up with Betway, you'll get a welcome R25 Free Bet for joining the site as a new customer. 

After completing Betway registration (use sign up code BGSA), you’ll need to deposit money into your account before you bet on the Powerball or any other lotteries, sports and casino games they have available. On the Betway site, click Lucky Numbers on the menu at the top of your screen to see all the lotteries available for betting in South Africa and abroad.

Types of Powerball Bets

Regular Draw without Bonus Ball

This is where you go to select the numbers you think will be drawn if you don't want to include the bonus ball. Before choosing your numbers, you'll need to select how many balls you want to predict (the fewer the easier, the more the harder it will be). If any of the balls drawn match your selections then your bet wins and you get paid out.
