A System entry allows you to enter up to 20 of your selected numbers, and every possible combination of those numbers, into Powerball.
Playing a System entry multiplies the number of games you are playing, so a winning System entry pays multiple prizes
System entries are defined by the amount of numbers you wish to play. For example, select 7 numbers to play a System 7 entry, select 8 numbers to play a System 8, and so on.
Systems 4 to 5
Play a System 4 or 5 by:
Selecting either 4 or 5 numbers in the top game panel of a Powerball coupon and one number in the lower 'Powerball' panel and marking the 'System' box; or
Asking your SA Lotteries retail agent for a Powerball System 4 or 5 Easi-Pick and letting the terminal generate the 4 or 5 numbers, and the Powerball number, for you.
Your selection of numbers is then combined with all remaining numbers in Powerball (1 to 40) to create every possible six-number combination (plus your Powerball selection) containing your selected numbers. For example:
Systems 7 to 20
Play a System 7 to 20 entry by:
Selecting between 7 and 20 numbers in a game panel, and one number in the lower 'Powerball' panel, of a Powerball coupon and marking the 'System' box; or
Asking your SA Lotteries retail agent to generate a Powerball Easi-Pick for the System entry of your choice (from 7 to 20) and letting the terminal generate the 7 to 20 numbers, and the Powerball number, for you.
Your numbers are then combined to create every possible unique six-number combination (plus your Powerball selection) using your selected numbers. For example:
System entries win multiple prizes. Refer to the Powerball Systems Prize table or Power20 Systems Prize Table to determine how many prizes you can win playing Systems.
