THE AMERICAN POWERBALL LOTTERY (USA POWERBALL)
History Of The American Powerball Lottery:
|Originally named Lotto*America, this national lottery underwent a few key changes in subsequent years. Four years after Lotto*America was established, the name was changed to Powerball on April 19, 1992. This rebranding created a new identity for a game that incorporated a pioneering concept of two drums into its structure when the first draw was held on April 22. Steve Caputo of the Oregon Lottery proposed the two-drum idea, which has since been established in the Mega Millions, Australia’s Powerball, The UK’s Thunderball and EuroMillions lotteries. The game now hosts a substantial 44 states and prize payment structures have widened to 30 annual payments, including the option for a lump sum cash pay-out.
How To Play The American Powerball Lottery:
The two-drum structure draws out two sets of numbers, allowing a wide variety of prize levels.
Lottery players need to select:
- 5 numbers in the range of 1-59 white balls
- 1 number in the range of 1-35 red Powerballs
The jackpot is won by matching all 6 numbers drawn, 5 white balls plus the red Powerball.
When To Play The American Powerball Lotto:
Powerball draws are held every Wednesday and Saturday at 10.59 p.m. Eastern Time at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. The draws are aired on many national USA TV channels and the results audited by the seasoned financial firm LWBJ, LLP.
US Powerball Rollovers, Power Play and Historic Jackpot Winnings:
Before any rollovers take place, the jackpot is $40 million USD, with the 2nd prize at $1 million USD. The maximum amount of rollovers that can take place is 19. The USA Powerball rolled over for the 11th time recently, placing it at the top of the world’s biggest lotteries list, at $290 million jackpot prize.
However, you don’t have to choose all 6 matching numbers to win. Lottery players that match at least three white balls and/or the red Powerball can win substantial prize money. Lottery players are also allowed an opportunity to win secondary prizes through the red Powerball option.
The U.S. Powerball offers an additional option called the “Power Play” which can double to quadruple secondary prize winnings. Therefore, the 2nd prize winner playing Power Play will receive $2,000,000. You only have to buy your ticket at an extra $1 to include the Power Play option, and win even bigger!
The Powerball has provided the highest jackpot prize with a single ticket in history, with a whopping $590.5 million USD prize won on Saturday 18 May 2013. At a close 2nd, $580 million was won by two lottery players on the 28th November 2012, and the 3rd largest prize occurred on the 18th February, cashed by eight Nebraska colleagues, at $365 million USD.
The annuity payment option pays out an initial amount followed by 29 graduated payments to total 30 payments, increasing by 4% annually to allow for inflation rates.
The cash jackpot payment is 32.5% of the (non-Power Play) of each jackpot won.
