While we made a case last week for Powerball’s strong May performance, at least for the last two years, the end of May 2014 has left us with a desire for a big jackpot jump after a next rollover – if that happens. Following the $21 million jump of Wednesday, January 28th, the jackpot increased with a a bit of a disappointing $19 million jump after Saturday’s, May 31st, rollover. Still, the jackpot rose to $192 million and is well on its way to bigger jackpot leaps. That is, if the jackpot prize will not be won in the next draw!
Six second place prize winners!
While the jackpot slowly approaches the $200 millon mark, there is a lot of activity around second place prizes. In Saturday’s draw, no less than six players matched the five winning regular numbers (15, 27, 31, 34, 48)! All of them (from Florida, Louisiana, Missouri, New York, Texas and Wisconsin) failed to guess the Powerball number 1 that was drawn. Also, none of them used the Power Play feature! Guys, come on! You could have doubled that $1 million! For other secondary prize winners, the Power Play number was 2, which entitles them to double the original prize money. Not the best score, we know – but still a considerable increase!
Powerball’s next draw
The US Powerball jackpot is by far the biggest jackpot of today, with just the EuroMillions jackpot following, at quite a distance though. With the EuroMillions Superdraw coming up at the end of this week (with a €100 million jackpot!), UK players will have to spread their luck over these two top lotteries, or make a choice for either one of them. Decide for yourself which one is your favorite option – just remember that €100 million (approx. $136 million) is still way behind the $192 million jackpot that is at stake in your favorite American lottery! Our advice: don’t choose if you don’t have to! Just play both!
