What is the powerball jackpot
Powerball is a game of chance, where you pick 6 numbers from 1 to 59 and the numbers that you pick are your Powerball number. If your Powerball number matches the winning number, then you win the jackpot.
In the beginnings of 2016, there was a Powerball jackpot of $1.58 billion. This is the largest jackpot in Powerball history and the second-largest jackpot ever in the United States and the world. It was won by three players, one from California, one from Tennessee and the last one from Florida. The winner chose to remain anonymous and received the money in 30 annual payments of $19.6 million.
How to play Powerball
The game consists of 59 balls numbered from 1 to 69. Players number the balls in ascending order, from 1 to 69, and multiply the balls by a factor of 37.5 to determine their prize. For example, a ball numbered 33 would be multiplied by 37.5 and multiplied by 59 to get a total of 1,329,125. Players can win prizes that range from $4 to $1,000,000.
Powerball Lottery Tips
1. First, choose your numbers carefully. When choosing your numbers, make sure they are not the same number as any previous drawing. Also, don't pick numbers that start with the same digit. These types of numbers are called lucky numbers. If you want to avoid unlucky numbers, try picking numbers that aren't consecutive.
2. After you've chosen your numbers, make sure you write them down somewhere safe. This way, if you win, you won't forget where you wrote them down.
3. Next, decide whether you're going to play the Powerball lottery online or at a store. Most people prefer playing online because they can save money this way.
4. Buy your ticket immediately after you've decided to play. If you wait too long, someone else could beat you to the punch.
5. Remember to check the Powerball lottery draw regularly. You'll have access to information about past drawings here.
