The largest ever WA win came more than five years ago, when a Perth family took home the entire Powerball division one prize — a whopping $50 million.
“In light of this make sure you get your tickets early and beat the rush,” Ms Coleman said.
She said that some of the most popular suburbs for buying tickets were Perth, Morley, Mandurah and Cloverdale.
She recommended a Powerpik 7 or a syndicate ticket as great ways to get involved in the draw.
“A $24.20 Powerpik 7 is a great way to play because the ticket gives you the Powerball number that you need to win division one,” she said.
“Joining a syndicate and sharing the cost of the ticket, whether in an informal one in the office or with family, or an organised syndicate through Lotterywest or your local retailer, is also a really fun way to play.
An estimated $9 million will be raised for the WA community from this Powerball’s five-week jackpot run.
All available profits from Lotterywest tickets go towards the Lotterywest COVID-19 Relief Fund which support organisations and people experiencing hardship due to COVID-19.
