PowerBall Jackpot Steadily RisingWednesday August 24th 2011
The world of lottery will be going stir crazy this week with the amount of huge jackpots on offer and players in the US will be particularly pleased to see the PowerBall Jackpot steadily rising. A MegaMillions jackpot win last weekend means that all focus will be on the PowerBall at the moment with its nearest rival in the lottery world being the EuroMillions on the other side of the Atlantic but we all know there is always room for more than one big jackpot.
The last time there was a jackpot winner on the PowerBall was back on August 11th when one lucky player from Minnesota won a massive $220 million. Obviously the PowerBall has not reached that level yet, but it is clear to see just how quickly it can climb and if it continues to roll over, it won’t be long before it reaches these epic heights once more.
Bringing the attention back to the current PowerBall jackpot, there is a draw taking place this evening and a monster $47 million jackpot is up for grabs. With the EuroMillions boasting the highest jackpot which is currently standing at $107 million, this easily makes the PowerBall one of the largest jackpots in the world today with only the Italian Lottery game, SuperEnalotto coming between them.
But if you are looking for a lightly easier lottery jackpot to win then it could be worth looking at the California Super Lotto Plus which has a current jackpot of $15 million and like the PowerBall, also has a draw taking place this evening.
