Are you a fan of TV programs like ‘Hotter than my daughter’? We are not judging anyone, but we do think that mothers and daughters should not be competitive about who’s the hotter one. Besides that, don’t you agree that some things are in a league of their own when it comes to ‘hotness’? RVP’s World Cup goal against Spain for example, or Andy Murray’s Wimbledon victory of 2013, or maybe the current jackpot of $149 million in the American Powerball lottery? If you agree with this statement, read on and we’ll tell you about this already gargantuan jackpot that could potentially grow to be much bigger even!
Ninth rollover in current run
After seven rollover jumps of $10 million, the minimum rollover amount in the US Powerball lottery, the jackpot has finally shown us improved rollover jumps in the last two draws! First we saw a $17 million jump, and after last night’s rollover the jackpot leaped from $127 million to $149 million! Now, these are the kind of rollover jumps the Powerball lottery is known and loved for, and we can feel the excitement rising, globally!
Have your Powerball tickets yet?
Are you one of those Powerball players with nerves of steel? Those players that can hold off on buying tickets until the jackpot is so big that it just doesn’t make any sense to not buy a ticket – let’s say around the $400 million mark? Are you? While we do admire this quality, to us it doesn’t make sense to risk missing out on a jackpot that is around the $150 million mark! But, that is obviously a matter of opinion. And let’s not forget that the US Powerball lottery offers more than just a fantastic jackpot prize! In Wednesday night’s draw, two players managed to win the second place prize for correctly matching the five regular winning Powerball numbers (2, 14, 39, 40, 43) – a price of $1 million! With an activated Power Play feature, this amount can be doubled to $2 million – but none of the two winners (from New York and Louisiana) chose to play this option.
Last night, 35 players won the third place prize of $10,000, among which two players that opted for playing with the Power Play – oh boy, were they lucky! The drawn Power Play number (a number between 2 and 5 that decides the multiplying factor of prizes in prize categories 3 to 9) was 5, resulting in a $50,000 prize for these two!
Pick your lucky numbers and play for that $149 million jackpot on Saturday, September 13th!
