The US Powerball Lottery
One of America's biggest lotteries, the Powerball proudly holds a record of paying the third biggest lottery win ever worldwide: A $590,500,000 hit by one winning ticket bought in Florida on May 2013. To attend in the Powerball draw, players are required to pick six numbers, the first five from a range of 1-59 and a bonus "Powerball" from a range of 1-35. Matching all six numbers grants the jackpot prize but there's a lot to be won from secondary prizes. Only on Saturday, the lottery paid out $9,173,236 to a total sum 874,290 across the world.
Play From Anywhere in the World
It isn't odd anymore to see an American lottery paying players from around the world, as the unseen borders of international lotteries have been cut through by the advent of online lottery ticket agents. With these, anyone anywhere can take a shot at America's biggest jackpots.
Leading sites like The Lotter and Lottery Master have turned the cumbersome process of purchasing a lottery ticket into a mere click of a mouse. Players are provided with a scanned copy of their ticket so it's as if they have gone out and bought the ticket themselves. So if you were on the fence, think no more and buy an online lottery ticket for tonight's Powerball draw. Good luck!
