The world record Powerball lottery jackpot is a staggering 1.5 billion dollars. Compared to that monster, you could say that the current 650 million dollar is nothing to get too excited about – if you‘re that type of person.
As for me, I‘m super excited. The next drawing takes place on Tuesday evening, the 22nd of August 2017 to be exact, and I cannot wait to see which six numbers come tumbling out of those lottery machines. I hope someone strikes lucky and not necessarily myself and if it doesn‘t happen, then the next draw will probably be for over 1 billion dollars!
Lucky lottery number 13 …
There‘s 5 main numbers you have to match for the jackpot, plus the all important Powerball number. In the weekend draw, which took place on Saturday August 19th, there were actually 8 lucky players who matched all five. This is well above average and as a result 8 new Powerball millionaires were added to the annals.
They were one number short of the 500+ million dollar jackpot prize, so close and yet so far away. Interestingly, they were missing the number 13. Was superstition the downfall of those 8 players? I can‘t say for sure, but last Saturday the number 13 was definitely a lucky one!
