Wednesday 1 August, 2012 - This Thursday evening, the biggest event in the country takes place, Powerball’s $50 million jackpot draw!
Although people around the country have been patriotically following Australia’s performance at the Olympics, with $50 million on offer, events such as the swimming finals and Australia’s game against China in the men’s basketball may take second place to checking Powerball numbers this Thursday evening!
Golden Casket Public Relations Executive Zoe Knobel said that with $50 million on offer, many people will be hoping to be a winner.
“Although following the Olympics is top of people’s priority list at the moment, we expect many Australians will add buying a ticket in tomorrow night’s $50 million Powerball draw to their list of important things to do,”Ms Knobel said.
“It is likely that only one or two people will win the huge $50 million first division jackpot, so we can expect many people will be watching the draw hoping their numbers come up!
“A share in a $50 million Powerball jackpot would be completely life-changing. Perhaps the winner will celebrate with a trip to the closing ceremony of the Olympics, with the best seats in the venue costing GB£1,500 they could certainly afford to,” she said.
“Grab your ticket in Thursday’s draw for your chance to take your place on the winner’s podium as one of Australia’s newest millionaires.”
Powerball entries can be purchased at any Golden Casket outlet or online at goldencasket.com. The draw will be broadcast at approximately 8.40pm AEST on Thursday 2 August on Channel Seven.
