April, April – how disappointing you were
Fans of the US Powerball lottery are usually spoiled with one incredible jackpot after the other. Incredible meaning at the very least $100 million, but usually (a lot) more. April 2015 will go down in history as a month with no such jackpots. Actually, since the $137 million jackpot that was won on March 14th, the Powerball jackpot didn’t manage to exceed the $80 million mark. Of course, we are the first to admit the fact that even the starting Powerball jackpot is amazing at $40 million – an amount higher than most jackpots will ever reach, even after numerous rollovers! But we have been spoiled in the past and have come to expect more than amazing things from this American lottery giant! But April just wasn’t amazing. However, the last Powerball draw of this April is now officially behind us and we’re moving on to better things in May! UK Powerball lottery fans: are you feeling lucky?
How to spend $70 million
Any idea yet how you will spend your prize money if you manage to win the next draw? We thought we’d give you a little taste of what $70 million can buy you in the real world. Ever heard of a guy by the name of Markus Persson? He’s Swedish (duh!) and he’s also the creator of the hugely popular Minecraft video game. He sold his company (Mojang) to Microsoft for – hold on to your seat – $2 billion, last September! Markus had his mind set on a Beverly Hills estate that is widely referred to as LA’s most extreme home, apparently. While this house (if you can call it a house) was destined to end up in the possession of Beyoncé and Jay-Z, it didn’t – because Markus Persson is the new owner! Who knows, maybe next time you’ll be the one to beat Beyoncé and her hubby – get your hands on the US Powerball jackpot and you might just do that! Buy your US Powerball tickets today!
