Powerball lottery jackpot reaches $750 million

Gambling News and Lucky Stories

Three years ago, no one could have imagined that they could hit a jackpot of $1 billion or more. However, this is the third time American lotteries have offered such record amounts. At the moment, the Powerball jackpot has reached $750 million, but ticket sales are constantly growing, and representatives of the lottery company predict that the prize will increase to at least one billion even before the results of the draw itself.

The Powerball lottery company noted that not only residents of the United States, but also foreign citizens will be able to compete for the new jackpot. TheLotter website spokesman Adrian Kumans said that a few years ago, two popular American lotteries Powerball and Mega Millions adapted their rules for foreign players, and as a result began to offer impressive jackpots: On our website, we see that players from Latin America become participants in these draws, Europe, Asia and Australia And this is not surprising. Companies offer large jackpots, and it is very easy to become a participant in the lottery draw. We had two jackpots of $1.6 billion. Powerball offered one in January 2016. And already in October 2018, Mega Millions raffled off the same amount. The American Powerball lottery is played in 44 states of America, as well as in Colombia, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. According to the rules of this lottery, the winner can choose how he wants to receive his winnings – in equal installments over 29 years or all at once. If the winner chooses the second option, then the amount of his winnings will decrease by 1.5 times. The federal tax will also be deducted from the winnings. Recall that the lottery to save the cultural heritage of France will begin in March and will last until July this year. The lottery, called the “Heritage Lottery”, is being held in France for the second time.
