Powerball is an American lottery game that began in 1992. Since then, the lottery has become popular as people become aware of it and win prizes. The game is quite easy, and if you have the luck, then you can win crazy amounts of money. Since it was launched, many people have participated and there have been numerous winnings of the main prize alongside many other prizes.
Who can play the Powerball?
The Powerball lottery is open for anyone to play. However, there are US states in which people do not participate in the game. If you live in a state where the lottery is not available, then you can travel to the nearest state where the game is available and purchase your ticket. About 44 states participate in the game implying that your neighboring state is probably a member.
If you live outside America or in a non-participating state, you can also participate in the game. Thanks to technology, you can now get the game online. All you need to do is visit their page, create an account, select a payment option, and then play the game. Several payment options are available here to make sure that your needs are covered. Once you have done that, then you are ready to win. You get notified by email when your account is successfully created. When you win your prize is credited to your account, and you can withdraw at any time.
The game is also only open for people who are of legal age. That means you have to be at least 18 years old or 21 in some states. Be sure to check with your local laws to avoid getting into trouble in case playing the lottery is illegal in your state at a certain age.
How the game is played
The lottery is designed to be among the simplest in the industry. All you need to do is select 5 numbers from 1-69 and 1 more number from 1-26. If you select the lucky numbers, you stand a chance to win the grand prize. All you have to do is wait for the results. If your numbers match the winning numbers in any arrangement, then you are the lucky winner.
You can also choose to play the non-grand prize game. This gives you a chance to win any amount of money depending on what numbers you match correctly. This is to give everyone a chance to walk away with something by increasing the odds of winning.
When playing the lottery, you could go for a power play. This option is designed to multiply your winning for every play you make. Let us say you played for a specific prize, if you include the power play for an extra $1, you get to double your grand prize. When you win the prize, and you had chosen the power play, then your prize is doubled. The power play is only limited to the jackpot where it is not applicable. There is also the multi-draw option to increase your odds of winning. This allows you to use your numbers for 10 different plays at an added cost.
This is the grand prize in this game. If you win the jackpot, you are guaranteed to walk away with $40 million. However, this prize can even be higher because of rollovers. Every time the jackpot is not won, the amount is rolled over to the next draw. There is no limit to the rollovers meaning you can walk away with billions of dollars. The jackpot keeps rolling over until someone wins it.
To win the jackpot, you have to match all the numbers correctly. You have to match the 5 standard numbers and the final Powerball number. To participate in this game, you only need $2 to buy a ticket. This is a reasonable bet that can make you a multimillionaire. You can also choose to add the special power play for $1 to more than double your winnings in the non-jackpot prizes.
When is the next draw?
The Powerball draw is open at 22.59 EST every Wednesday and Saturday in Tallahassee, Florida. If you feel lucky, then you can catch the Powerball draw any of those two days to get a chance to win the grand prize. Tickets for the draw are always open until about one hour before the draw then no more ticket sales. However, this may vary in different states so you should check how it is done in your state.
The dates may also vary depending on where you are playing from. Sometimes the draw can be on a Thursday or a Friday for people in Australia and South Africa respectively. Be sure to check the dates on the Powerball official website to avoid missing the chance to win millions.
While playing Powerball online, you need to be very careful. Always use the official site to create your account and place your bet. There have been some cases where people receive emails telling them they have won the Powerball lottery. This is usually a fraud because Powerball officials never contact you via email regarding your winning and neither do they ask for any money before sending you the winnings.
The odds of winning
Winning the jackpot is a matter of fortune and luck. However, the odds of winning the Powerball jackpot stands at 1: 292,201,338. This number may look big, but we have seen people walk away with the grand prize several times. That means it could be your lucky day even if it is your first time playing the game.
You can also win other small prizes. The odds vary depending on your ticket, but the best odd you can have is 1: 24.87 where you win a small prize by matching simple numbers or the Powerball. You can win by matching any amount of numbers. Don’t forget to include the power play to double your prize.
