Powerball Still Climbing, Reaches $151 millionWednesday January 30th 2013
The Powerball jackpot is still slowly climbing upwards, after yet another week passes with no jackpot winner being found. This means that the estimated jackpot for the midweek draw taking place later on tonight in Orlando, Florida is $151 million, a sum which will start to really pique interest from lottery players across America! This is a result of the jackpot rolling over for the last eight draws, and no jackpot cap means the jackpot can sky rocket in no time – just ask Missouri couple Mark and Cindy Hill!
Mark and Cindy Hill are famous as being one half of the recipients of the biggest Powerball jackpot of all time. They won the $588 million Powerball jackpot along with Matthew Good from Arizona on 28th November 2012, and pledged to use the money for good causes. And it seems they are true to their word, as news has come out that they are using some of their $293 million winnings to improve Mark’s hometown of Camden Point.
According to news reports, the Hills have donated funds to move the towns’ firehouse and put it in a more prominent position in the town, plus have assisted in buying land for a waste water treatment plant. They also have created a new scholarship for students of the local high school, North Platte. Chief Fire Officer and friend of the Hill’s, Chief Walt Stubbs has been quoted as saying, “We are going to reap the benefits of their good fortune”.
So, if you want to be in with a chance of making a difference in your community, just like Mark and Cindy Hill, play the Powerball this week, and see if you are one of the lucky ones to hit the jackpot!
