Yesterday, the US Powerball jackpot rolled over for the fourth time in a row, resulting in a $10 million increase of the jackpot, that now contains $80 million, available in next Wednesday’s, April 9th, draw. This is good news for big jackpot lovers, since the current Powerball jackpot is the biggest jackpot in the world right now, but more remarkable in last night’s draw was the drawn Power Play number: for the first time in ages a number larger than 2 was drawn! In fact, and this will have made secondary prize winners extremely happy, the maximum multiplier of x5 was the drawn Power Play number in this 28th draw of 2014!
Second place prize winners do not benefit from the flexible Power Play number, since the $1 million second place prize can only be doubled when players play the Powerball lottery with an activated Power Play option. In Satruday’s draw, we noted five second place prize winners, from Arkansas, New Mexico, New York, Oregon and Texas. The New Mexican winner actually opted to play with the Power Play option, so he will receive $2 million insteda of $1 million, just for checking that little checkbox on the US Powerball lottery form! You pay a little bit more, but you win a lot more! Third place prize winners won a $10.000 regular prize, or a $50.000 Power Play prize in this last draw! That is a huge difference – well worth that little extra fee for activating the Power Play option – if you ask us, that is.
The next Powerball draw will happen on the 9th of April, which is coming Wednesday. Make sure to get your US Powerball tickets in time so you can take a shot at winning the biggest lottery jackpot in the world right now, the $80 million US Powerball jackpot!
