Once again the popular US Powerball jackpot is on the rise! No jackpot winners in the draw on Wednesday, December 14, 2016! The jackpot rolls over and stands at $119 million ($71.2 million cash value). Tennessee Powerball jackpots were not won in that state or elsewhere! This ensures that the Powerball continues as the biggest lottery jackpot in the world right now! With a jackpot that huge, isn’t about time that you played the Powerball?
The Powerball jackpot was most recently won on November 26, 2016 when a single ticket bought in Tennessee won an incredible $421 million prize. That prize will actually be shared by twenty co-workers at the North American Stamping Group, an auto parts manufacturing plant. If the winners take the cash option, each will receive $12.7 million before taxes.
The US Powerball continues to attract attention due to its amazing jackpots. Amazingly, that $421 million jackpot is not even in the top ten of all-time biggest lottery jackpots! Record breaking or not, and with its current world-leading jackpot of $119 million, it’s definitely time to play the Powerball online now!
Great Day for Tennessee Powerball Jackpots
“What a great day for Tennessee!” says Rebecca Hargrove, President and CEO of the Tennessee Education Lottery. “We couldn’t be happier for this wonderful group of friends. The excitement from winning experiences like these is a key part of our success raising funds for education programs in Tennessee.”
Tennessee? There are a lot of big lottery winners from that state and what’s that all about? In fact, this latest Powerball jackpot win is the 200th ticket sold by the Tennessee Lottery worth $1 million or more. And yet this huge jackpot prize is not even the biggest ever for a Tennessee jackpot winner!
In January, the Powerball set a worldwide lottery record when it awarded a jackpot of $1.58 billion, a prize shared by three tickets. One ticket belonged to John and Lisa Robinson and they are from a small town north of Memphis. Another Powerball ticket holder from Tennessee won $2 million in that very same draw! It seems like there is something in the air, or in the water, of Tennessee that attracts Powerball wins! Maybe Tennesseans know something about the Powerball that we don’t know?
There is, however, no need to live in Tennessee to win the Powerball! You can win the US Powerball and it doesn’t matter where you live in the world! Play Powerball now and win an incredible jackpot prize!
