Powerball (and Powerball Plus) in the Republic of South Africa has changed number format to add 5 more balls to the number-field. It is now a 5/50+1/20 game (previously 5/45 + 1/20). On June 16, 2018, the first drawing under the new format was held. The odds of winning the game are up to one in 42,375,200.
We have started new game files for this game and Powerball Plus, which can be used with Advantage Gold and other Smart Luck lottery software. The old game files will no longer be updated. If you use favorites in Lottery Updater, you will need to select the new game files. Our software will work the same with the new files as they did with the old files. You will just need to wait a few months for more drawings to build up with the new format in order for the medium and long-term trend charts to be useful. Wheel Five Gold will still work using any wheel with 50 or fewer total numbers.
