The UK Powerball lottery is a new game that takes place twice a week and offers lucky punters the chance to land an incredible jackpot worth 85 million rand.
The jackpot is a fixed amount, which means that, unlike rolling-jackpot lotteries, it won't increase between draws when there are no Division 1 winners. This means you always know what you're playing for.
Standing at R85 million, the UK Powerball jackpot is your chance to win one of the biggest jackpots available in South Africa, every Wednesday and Saturday.
