Exciting USA Powerball Lottery Stories

The Biggest Jackpot In Powerball History

If no player matches the 6 numbers, the jackpot amount for that draw is rolled over to the next one. In January 2016, the Jackpot amount for that draw had amounted to an enormous $1,586,400,000. Three lucky players had matched the numbers right, one from Florida, a couple from Tennessee and another couple from California. As a general rule, if more than one player hits the jackpot, the amount is divided equally among them. In this particular draw, they all walked away with $327.8 million, (before taxation). They also had an option get the amount in 30 annual payments but chose to pick it in a lump sum.

The Massive $758.7 Million win

At the end of summer, in August 2017, a 53-year-old Mavis Wanczyk won the second highest jackpot ever won in Powerball history. The hospital worker from Massachusetts bagged a mighty $758.7 million win. The most amazing part was the system she used to pick his lucky numbers. They were all numbers from her birth date, so maybe you could try this and await the lottery results tonight and try your luck too. This jackpot is actually the highest amount won by a single ticket.

Apart from the top two, there are many more occasions where excellent jackpot wins were made. In 2015, a resident of Michigan, known as Julie Leach won $310 million. She chose to get a lump sum amount and went home with $ 140 million. During the same year, three lucky players also won a $564 million jackpot that was divided amongst them.

Other Major Jackpots Won In Powerball

On May 18, 2013, a very lucky Gloria Mackenzie won the only winning ticket for the $590 million dollar jackpot. The 84-year-old explained how while she was purchasing the ticket another player was kind enough to let her pass the queue to purchase the winning ticket. In the previous year, on 28 November, two lucky players get to win and split the $587.5 million win.

on 15th February 2015, three lucky players, Andrew Weber, Marie Holmes and an anonymous player from Puerto Rico won the $559.7 million jackpot. Staying anonymous when you win the lottery is also an option, as long as you present the winning ticket to the Powerball team which at Multilotto is done for you for the mini draws and deposited into your account. A single ticket won the Powerball draw on 6th January 2018 and was worth $559.7 million.

How Does US Powerball Work?

The Basics

In US Powerball, you pick:

  • five numbers (i.e. the white balls) from a selection pool consisting of 1-69, and
  • one number (i.e. the red ball) from a selection pool of 1-25

Take note that the red ball can be the same number as one of the white balls. You can pick numbers manually or via a Quick Pick option – which means you let a system randomly pick the numbers for you.

Winning numbers are drawn at 10:59pm every Wednesday and Saturday at Universal Studios in Florida.

Two drums, one containing the white balls, and the other containing the red balls, are used to randomly select the winning numbers. Matching all 6 numbers awards you the jackpot, while matching 5 gives you the 2nd place prize category, and so on.

Each ticket line costs $1, but some online lottery sites may charge higher to cover for the service of purchasing, scanning and safekeeping tickets.

The Power Play

You can also include a Power Play number in your entry.

For an additional $1 on top of the $1 per line (again, prices may vary on lottery sites), the Power Play number multiplies prizes for non-jackpot winnings by up to 5 or 10 times. The second prize with the Power Play multiplier activated, for instance, is automatically doubled to $2,000,000.

Check out the table below to see how Power Play affects each prize category.

What Happens if You Win?

Powerball jackpots are split between anyone who has a winning lottery ticket, while all other prizes are of a fixed amount. That said, non-jackpot prizes could be reduced if the number of winners exceed the lottery operator’s prize fund.

Winners have the option to choose whether to collect their payment as an annuity paid over a 29-year period, or as a lump sum.

Winners have a year to claim their prize. Otherwise, the money often goes to the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund, which funnels the money to charity. This won’t always be the case, though, as each MUSL member has different rules that dictate what happens to unclaimed prizes.
