Tonight: $60 Million Jackpot in the US Powerball Draw

The US Powerball lottery will draw for a $60 million jackpot tonight (11pm EDT/3am GMT).

The US Powerball lottery has rolled over to a $60 million jackpot after no ticket matched the six drawn numbers: 7, 8, 17, 48, 59 and the Powerball 9 with a 2X multiplier. Two tickets matched five numbers, granting their holders a $1 million prize, part of a total sum of $4,493,401 in non-jackpot prizes which was paid to 397,621 winners. Even if one doesn't match the big jackpot, the Powerball is a generous lottery. Tonight's draw will take place 11pm EST (3am GMT).

The US Powerball

One of the world's largest lotteries, the US Powerball takes place Wednesday and Saturday. Although it's an American lottery, the Powerball has become somewhat of an international lottery thanks to the advent of online lottery tickets and agents.

Players from all over the world regularly take part in the Powerball draws as well as the Mega Millions', this is done with the help of online lottery ticket agents the likes of TheLotter and Lottery Master which have agents spread out globally. These agents purchase lottery tickets for players, supplying them with a scan of the ticket so it will be as if they have bought it themselves.

Playing the Powerball is very simple: Players are required to pick six numbers, the first five from a 1-59 range and the bonus Powerball from a range of 1-35. The Power Play multiplier for each draw multiplies prizes for those who purchased the option for an extra $1 per line.

Take Part in Worldwide Lotteries

America's huge lotteries are not the only ones in which players can participate thanks to online lottery ticket agents: Online lottery tickets can be bought to major European lotteries the likes of the EuroMillions, Spain's El Gordo and Italy's SuperEnalotto, as well as Australia's popular Oz Lotto.
