The record-breaking draw will take place next week

Lottery agents are bracing for a rush on tickets today as people race to secure their chance at a slice of the $100 million Powerball jackpot.

It was the eighth straight week without a division one victor.

The Lott spokeswoman Bronwyn Spencer said next week's $150 million draw was a division one prize that had never been seen before in Australian lottery history.

The estimated jackpot is $50 million.

Victoria and New South Wales each enjoyed three division one wins, while Queensland, South Australia and Tasmania each scored one.

"We would love to see a WA victor, and it's also important to note this week alone we expect to raise around 7.8 million for the WA community thanks to our Powerball players".

The ACT, Northern Territory and Tasmania are also without a victor this year.

In the 12 months to 30 June 2019, nine Powerball division one winners across the Lott's jurisdictions pocketed more than $395.5 million in prize money.

Winners playing online and on the app will be contacted and those with paper tickets can scan them with the app or take them to their nearest outlet to see if they have won.

The was no Division One victor, skyrocketing next week's Powerball to a record $150 million.

A $2 ticket gives you a one in 292.2 million chance at joining the hall of Powerball jackpot champions.

Among these winners, there were eight division two winners, who each claimed a prize of $173,767.85.

They were just one number shy of taking home the multi-million dollar prize.

If a single entry takes home the entire $150 million jackpot next week, it will be the biggest Australian lottery prize ever won by a single entry, surpassing the previous record by $43 million.

Close to one million tickets are expected to be sold for the draw in WA, with one in three Australians expected to get a ticket.
