Weighing up the pros and cons of a smaller jackpot
You've won the Jackpot but do you get all the money?
Plenty of people have tried but have they ever take the jackpot.
The first ever Powerball lottery draw was in April 1992, with a starting jackpot of just US $2 million. Since then, the USA's Powerball lottery game has become the most talked about lottery on the planet with millions of Americans participating in every draw. But why?
The simple answer is the size of the jackpots. Unlike any other game in the world the notorious Powerball lottery has the ability to award winners with the largest jackpots ever seen. Seemingly minor changes to the rules were introduced in October 2015 that lengthened the odds of winning the jackpot.
Lottery history was rewritten in January 2016 when the world experienced what lottery insiders now call the Powerball tsunami. The accumulation of 19 rollover draws saw the Powerball jackpot grow to an eye watering US $1.5 billion. The media went into overdrive and it's not hard to see why, when just two weeks before the billion-dollar draw, the jackpot was just US $400 million.
The US $1.5 billion jackpot was eventually split between three winners. It's now estimated that there will be a Powerball jackpot in excess of US $1 billion every 18 months.
Non-US residents can play the Powerball lottery via our website. Powerball.ca was created for would-be Canadian players of the renowned Powerball lottery.
The idea for Powerball.ca was formed during the January 2016 Powerball draw which saw thousands of Canadians crossing the border into the US to buy tickets for the billion-dollar draw – most of them waiting in line for hours. Little did they know, there are places online to buy Powerball tickets.
With a little help, we'll show you how using an online lottery service lets Canadians participate in the Powerball lottery from the comfort of their own home.
Lottery services are quietly revolutionising the way we play lotteries. Until now, lottery players have never been able to participate in lotteries in countries where they don't reside. Let Powerball.ca be your guide to this new and exciting way to play the millionaire-making Powerball lottery online.
