Mega Millions biggest jackpot ever was won on October 23rd 2018. But, the lottery fever is not over yet! After a $1.53 billion Mega Millions jackpot won on a ticket purchased in South Carolina, Powerball is tempting lottery fans with a $750 million top prize.
Have you played the Mega Millions historic draw? If you were not the lucky ticket holder from South Carolina, do not worry! It’s never too late to become an American lottery winner! Your chance lies with US Powerball now, who displays an appealing jackpot for this Saturday’s draw: $750 million.
The US Powerball jackpot has been rolling over since August 11th, 2018, when a $245 million prize was won. Later won by the forty-two-year-old Nandlall Mangal from Staten Island, this was the 6th Powerball jackpot of 2018. The largest one was worth $559.7 million and it was won by the Good Karma Family 2018 Nominee Trust on January 6th, 2018. But, the jackpot on offer right now is even higher!
The $750 million Powerball jackpot is not the highest prize in this American lottery’s history. However, if it is won on Saturday’s draw, it will occupy a 3rd position in Powerball’s top biggest jackpots. If nobody matches all the winning numbers, it will continue to grow, and, hopefully break new records.
Another billion dollar jackpot ?
Despite the recent lottery fever generated by Mega Millions, Powerball is still the holder of the world record with the $1.58 billion jackpot delivered in January 2016. But, Mega Millions has broken part of Powerball strength: the $1.53 billion jackpot is the largest win on a single ticket. That’s a record formerly in Powerball’s portfolio, with the $758 million jackpot won my Mavis Wanczyk in August 2017.
Will we see another record? Will we see another billion dollar Powerball jackpot? The bigger the top prize gets, the faster it grows. If during the first rollovers, the jackpot grows by $10 million, in peak times, we can see even half a billion added up when nobody matches the winning numbers. For instance, the month of January 2016 saw a $300 million jackpot in its first days, but in less than two weeks, it reached the incredible $1.58 billion.
So, stop dreaming about thing you could buy with such an amount of money in your pockets! You cannot win unless you play. Buy your Powerball ticket right now and you have a chance to become the next winner!
