Powerball origins

Who knew that Powerball wasn’t the original game? In 1988 Lotto*America began and served as Powerball’s predecessor. Much like the game we have today, it was a multi-state game but this game only had one set of numbers to choose from.

In 1992 Powerball was launched and changed the way lotto lovers played the game. Powerball became the first game to use two drums to draw numbers. The new two-drum system allows for higher odds of winning the jackpot and numerous prize levels. As a bonus, players can solely match the Powerball number, one number, and still become a winner.

Over the years, various other lotteries have been created that mimic the Powerball structure. To name a few, these lotteries include Mega Millions, Australia’s Powerball and Eurojackpot. The invention of these lotteries now brings major jackpots to various other parts of the world.

While a host of other lotteries have popped up over the years, Powerball holds the record for the highest jackpot ever won. Sitting at a monumental $1.586 billion, January 13, 2016 marks the date as the day the highest jackpot in history was won.

How to play

Powerball is structured using a two-drum system. Every player will select 6 numbers in total, 5 numbers from the white set and 1 number from the red powerballs. If players match all 6 numbers they win the jackpot. But things are not that clear-cut, if a player only matches the powerball, that player will still win. Powerball prizes work on a tier system, the amount of numbers you match determines the amount of money you’ll win.

Sometimes there’s no winner as no one matched the numbers that were drawn. But that’s not a bad thing, it simply means that the jackpot rolls over and keeps accumulating. A rolled over jackpot equals a much larger jackpot for you to win on the following draw day. Same odds, bigger prize value!
