If you have landed on this page and are new to the USA Powerball lottery, allow me to give you a brief introduction to this huge lotto game.
Powerball is played in 43 US States and along with Mega Millions is one of the world’s two biggest jackpot lottery games. At the time of writing, the Powerball has created 6 of the 10 biggest jackpots in lottery history, the largest being $590.5 that was won on 18th May 2013 by Gloria McKenzie of Zephyrhills, Florida.
Powerball’s minimum jackpot is $40 million (annuity) but jackpots often dwarf this starting figure. Its annuity option is paid in 30 graduated installments. Players may also opt for a one time cash payout but this figure is considerably less than the annuitized jackpot figure.
If you are an American citizen and wish to play Powerball you can either buy your tickets from a lottery retailer in one of the participating member states or online from the offical Powerball website. If you are a non-US citizen and still wish to play Powerball, you can do so via a recognised lottery ticket retailer.
Good luck to you all in future Powerball games and I very much hope that your numbers land you in one of the nine Powerball prize divisions.
