PowerBall rolls over againTuesday May 18th 2010
While on one side of the Atlantic there was the lottery excitement of the EuroMillions win and now the waiting for the identity of the record breaking UK winner to be revealed, players in the US have lottery excitement of their own as the PowerBall rolls over again. This means that there is a massive $145 million up for grabs for the next draw which will take place on Wednesday 16th May. Although there was a huge MegaMillions win not so long ago, this too is on the rise again and will be ready to offer a substantial jackpot by the time the PowerBall has a winner.
It seems that these kinds of PowerBall Lottery rollover jackpots are going to a way of life now as they just seem to keep coming. This is great news for the lottery world and what makes playing the PowerBall so exciting for players in the US and indeed all over the world.
The last PowerBall win was a massive $252 million on 22nd April 2010, less than a month ago and with the current 10X promotion which is currently running on the PowerBall until 29th May, we could expect to see people turn out in a frenzy to buy lotto tickets for the PowerBall. The 10X promotion gives players the chances to multiply their non jackpot wins so those who do not win the jackpot have the option to increase any smaller tier prizes they may win, making the PowerBall more attractive to play. The downside of course is, that the more players there are, the more chance there is of the PowerBall being won meaning that the jackpot is less likely to rise to the high that it reached last month, but this is a lottery game and we all know, nothing is guaranteed.
