Powerball Jackpot Estimated at $240 Million

Wednesday June 13th 2012

The American lottery that is the Powerball will have its first draw of the week tonight and there is a rollover jackpot available to win as players in the last 13 draws have failed to match the five plus Powerball combination drawn in the results to win the top prize. This means that tonight the Powerball jackpot on offer to win is estimated at $240 million, so have your tickets ready for this mid-week draw if you fancy matching the numbers drawn and scooping this impressive jackpot.

This Powerball jackpot is the second highest the jackpot has reached this year. The highest jackpot seen this year was an impressive $336,366,299. This jackpot was won by a ticket purchased in Rhode Island on the 11th February, so it will be interesting to see if the Powerball jackpot isn’t won tonight whether it will carry on rolling over to surpass the highest amount won this year.

The last time the Powerball jackpot was won was on the 25th April when a ticket that was purchased in Pennsylvania matched the numbers drawn and won the top prize that was worth $173 million. Since then the jackpot has been rolling over as no players have been able to match the Powerball results, so we shall have to wait and see if that will be the case again in tonight’s draw.

If the jackpot does rollover again tonight then it will be the 14th time in a row that the top prize hasn’t been won in this lottery, so if you like the sound of winning this Powerball jackpot make sure you have your tickets ready and you never know, luck could be on your side.
