The Powerball jackpot has been growing by leaps and bounds in recent weeks. For the second straight year, nobody on earth hit all five numbers for the Powerball jackpot. That huge jackpot has now been increased by almost thirty percent to over a half a billion dollars. Wow! For the second straight year, nobody hit the Powerball jackpot.
Now that the Powerball jackpot is growing like an ocean, everybody wants to take a slice of the action. So how do you find out who will win the Powerball? Powerball winners are revealed every Wednesday night during the syndicated Powerball game. There are many Powerball winners who have shared their winning ticket number with friends and family. As a matter of fact, it has become so popular that there are actually Powerball winners who play the Powerball game but don’t reveal their winning information until the weekend or the next day.
To make things even better, you can actually play the Powerball game from your home and the odds of winning are very low. The chances of winning powerball are as low as 5.1%. It’s true that the Powerball jackpot is increasing by the day and the more players who play the Powerball game, the larger the chances that somebody will hit the lucky six-digit number on the Wednesday or the weekend draws.
So how much is the Powerball jackpot growing by the day? Well, one person a day earns over USD 700 million. We can imagine how big the jackpot grows if we apply it to each of the 19 weekends that the Powerball game is held. That would give us a grand total of USD 7.2 million every weekend.
Now that you know how big the prize money is, you may be asking yourself if it’s worth playing. Many people do play Powerball, and they tell you it’s worth it. It really can be worth it to play, provided you know what you’re doing and you choose the right time to play. If you’ve never played before, I recommend that you play during the weekdays when the major casinos are open. This way you won’t have to wait for the start time of the weekend draw.
However, if you do play during the weekend, keep in mind that you are going to be competing with other people who also want to win the big prize. You must be prepared for them to play at their full capacity and as hard as they possibly can. If you don’t think you can handle this, then it might not be a good idea for you to play. That said, it’s important that you know that you can get the prizes that you win.
You must remember that Powerball has a limit on the number of bids that you can place on a single ticket. The amount that you can win varies depending on the actual winning amount that was bid on the ticket. For example, if someone bids an amount that is lower than your maximum amount you will not be able to win that amount. But if someone bids an amount that is higher than your maximum amount, then you will be able to win that amount. Because of this, Powerball players find that it is worthwhile to play and compete with others that are trying to win the biggest amount of winnings possible.
So if you are looking to play Powerball for fun, there is nothing wrong with that. But if you want to actually cash in on your winning results, then it’s recommended that you play during the weekdays when there is less competition. Then you’ll be able to play at your maximum bid amount without having to worry about competitors bumping you down. And if you play on the weekend, you should be able to play at your regular prices since Powerball players all play at the same odds and play at different times.
