The Multi-State Lottery Association and the Powerball Product Group have announced new major jackpot changes that will come into place starting April 8th. This comes only days after their previous statement that was reducing the starting jackpot to $20 million with a minimum increase of $2 million between drawings. Now, the Powerball officials completely eliminated the guaranteed minimum amount as well as the minimum increase threshold. Previously, the US Powerball lottery had a starting jackpot of $40 million with minimum rollover increases of $10 million.
The coronavirus pandemic has affected different aspects of the world economy as well as people’s lives. With many US states are under lockdown or similar recommendations coming from the local authorities, consumer behavior has also gone through noticeable changes.
