US Powerball Lottery History
On Sept. 16, 1987, The Multi-State Lottery Association formed (a non-profit organization formed by an agreement with U.S. lotteries), with the only members being the District of Columbia, Iowa, Kansas, Oregon, Rhode Island, and West Virginia (with Missouri joining a month later. The rest of the states joined over time.
The first game was called Lotto America. It was a pick-7-of-40 game. Players who matched four numbers won a prize of $5. Those matching five numbers won a pari-mutuel prize, and matching all seven numbers won the jackpot.
Unlike the Powerball lottery that we know today, Lotto America only offered a 20-year annuity and no cash option.
In April 1992, Lotto America was renamed Powerball, with the first drawing held April 22, 1992. This new version was the first lotto game to use two drums to draw the winning lottery numbers. One drum is used for the white balls and one for the red Powerball which gives the US Powerball lottery its name.
The lottery draws themselves are all about suspense, glitz and glamour, but what we see on-screen is preceded by a lot of methodical preparation.What happens behind the scenes, from the draw machines to the balls and the tight security procedures in place, ensures that each and every lottery draw is fair and random:

- 21:30 EST – draw equipment is transported into the lottery studio.
