The most popular American interstate game of lottery is Powerball. Among several other North American Lotteries, the most important of all is Powerball Lotteries. In 1988, the Powerball lottery game was introduced by Multi-State Lottery Association- a nonprofit organization in accordance to the lottery-related laws of the state. Since then it is being run by this organization. At that time it was known as Lotto America. It was then changed into its present name in 1992. The jackpot of the game is sold and shared in 44 U.S. jurisdictions.
Thanks to growing popularity in the enormous Powerball jackpots this game can be played online from almost anywhere in the world. That means that people outside of America can use trusted agents online to purchase their Powerball tickets. In this way they can receive their prizes to almost any country via bank transfer.
The Powerball is played by selecting 5 different numbers from 1-59, and 1 “Powerball” number from 1-35. These six numbers make up a single Powerball entry and cash prizes can be won for matching just the Powerball number on its own.
The numbers must be matched with the draw the purchased the ticket for and there are two draws held each week on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 23:00 Eastern Standard time. You will be able to find the results online on our Powerball Results page within minutes of the live draw.
The Powerball has created some of the biggest lottery winners in America. The highest jackpot it has ever distributed was for $365 million and this was shared between eight different people who all became very rich. The minimum jackpot guaranteed for each draw is for $20,000,000, although this quickly rolls over to create enormous cash prizes often over $100,000,000.
In America when a jackpot is won the player can choose to receive the prize as an annuity or a single sum payment. When choosing the annuity prize the winner receives the advertised value of the jackpot over 30 annual payments. Players outside of America who win the jackpot by playing Powerball online can only receive their prize as a lump sump payment.
What makes the game of Powerball so fun to play are the large assortment of different cash prizes that are awarded to players who missed out on winning the jackpot. See our table below for a full list of available Powerball prizes.
