PowerBall Jackpot is Highest of the YearWednesday August 10th 2011
It is not unusual to see the multi state lottery game PowerBall frequently reach dizzy heights. However, the PowerBall Jackpot is the highest of the year so far, currently standing at a monster $220 million which many of you might find surprising. In fact this is the highest jackpot it has boasted not only this year but for more than a year in total, so this is likely to bring a lot of excitement to lottery players all over the world and particularly those in the US.
With the MegaMillions finally producing a winner last week, this is no longer in competition with the PowerBall and many players will now be focusing their effort on the PowerBall and spending their money on one lottery game instead of dividing it between the two.
It is quite clear that the PowerBall jackpot is one of the highest in the world at the moment, if not the highest and with a draw taking place this evening we are likely to see huge queues at lottery retailers across the US as people make a last minute rush to buy tickets for this evenings draw.
The last time there was a jackpot winner for the PowerBall was on 30th June when a lucky lotto ticket holder from Ohio scooped a $76 million prize, so it is has only taken a little over a month for the PowerBall jackpot to climb to what it stands at today and will rise even more quickly if there is no winner this evening. You can be sure that this will be the lottery game that players across the globe will be watching tonight.
