Lotto of the Week: USA Powerball

This first week of June is an incredibly good time to be dabbling in lottery play, as there are some pretty enormous draws coming up -- including a 100 Million Euro Millions Superdraw and an 84 Million El Gordo draw.  First place, however, has to go to American Powerball, which is offering a $192 MILLION jackpot on Wednesday.


Powerball is one of America's two biggest multi-state lotteries and boasts some of the largest jackpot prizes in the world. Here are just a few of the record-breaking jackpots it has paid out in the past few years:
  • US$425 Million on February 19, 2014
  • US$591 Million on May 18, 2013
  • US$338 Million on March 23, 2013
  • US$587 Million on November 28, 2012
  • US$305 Million on August 15, 2012
  • US$336 Million on February 11, 2012
Since the game mechanics changed in January 2012, Powerball jackpots now start at a minimum of $40 Million, and roll over until all numbers are matched. There is no maximum jackpot.

Try your luck now at one of the world's most famous lottery games!
