6 things you’ll kick yourself for not knowing about playing USA Power Lotto

In 1992, Strictly Ballroom was released at the cinema, the first Big Day Out was held at the Sydney Showgrounds and Paul Keating was Prime Minister of Australia. It was also the year the first US Powerball draw took place in the USA.

US Powerball is now one of the biggest lotteries in the world and currently holds the record for the world’s biggest jackpot! But there’s more to this massive lottery than big jackpots.

This American lottery was the first lottery in the world to use two drums to draw numbers. This system was so great that other lottery giants such as US Mega Millions and EuroMillions adopted the same method.

Back in 2015 the game changed, more balls were added to the first drums and less balls from the second. This helped to create even bigger jackpots and more winners!

You might think you know everything there is to know about US Powerball, but here are 5 things you’ll kick yourself for not knowing about US Powerball and playing our matching USA Power Lotto.

2. The prizes aren’t just big – they are HUGE!

As we said before, US Powerball currently holds the record for the world’s biggest jackpot. In January 2016, three extremely lucky players shared a mind-blowing jackpot win of approximately AUD$2 billion. Can you imagine winning this amount of money?

In 2012 the minimum US Powerball jackpot was raised to an unbelievable US$40 million, that’s just over AUD$50 million at today’s exchange rate. ! If the jackpot isn’t won, it’s rolled over and continues to grow until they find a winner from a draw!
