US Powerball Jackpot now $450 million
If you ever wanted to win really big on a lottery game then now is your chance with a whopping $450 million up for grabs with the US Powerball Jackpot that is next played on Wednesday. This is one of the biggest prizes ever offered by the multi-state lottery.
On last Saturday draw tickets holders did pick up between them around $30 million in lower prizes, however there was no player who qualified for the jackpot. The Powerball jackpot is a twice weekly draw on a Saturday and a Wednesday and usually starts at $40 million and continues to increase in size until at least one player has the winning number.
If a winner chooses to take a cash prize this is always smaller than the main jackpot. After Saturdays draw this has risen to $304.1 million. However, to take the full prize the winner will receive this in regular payments over a 29 year period.
It was in 2013 when a player with a single winning ticket received the biggest Powerball jackpot by the multi-state lottery which was a prize of $590.5 million. Last year saw the Powerball sales reach almost $5 billion sold through over 210,000 lottery terminals.
According to the Associated Press, the last time the Powerball jackpot was this big at $425 million was February 2014.
