Big winner - Powerball JackpotWhat Is Powerball Jackpot?

Powerball is a American lottery game that is played in 44 states.  The advertised jackpot begins at $20 million but can certainly break into the the hundreds of millions, as it does quite often.  Although playing the lottery may not have the greatest odds, we think the consistency of Powerball jackpot ‘s large prize makes it worth playing every week!  What is the harm in trying?  There are two drawings per week, held on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10:59 EST.  If you can’t catch the winning numbers on television you can head over to the website where the numbers will be posted a short time after the drawing.

  2. July 29th, 1998 – $295.7 million was won by 13 machinists in the state of Ohio.
  3. October 19th, 2005 – A family from Jacksonville Oregon won $340 million.  They chose the cash option, which brought their winnings down to “only” $164,410,058.03.
  4. August 25th, 2007 – A retired auto work from Ohio purchased a ticket in Richmond, Indiana that was worth $314.3 million.  The city of Richmond has sold two lottery jackpots where the winnings were at least $200 million cash.  Maybe we should start buying our tickets there!
