On the 6th of January 2016, the US Powerball jackpot will be drawn. It will be the 7th largest cash value prize in its history as a lottery. To learn more about this highly exciting draw, keep reading.
Tomorrow’s Powerball draw is going to be the hot lottery to play since it features a jackpot much larger than any other United States draws to have happened in a year. The year 2016 really is off to a great start!
The reasons for as to why the Powerball jackpot has risen to such an astronomical value is because of the fact that no players were lucky in matching all of the winning numbers on Saturday night’s draw for $355.8 million. The winning numbers were:
5-6-15-29-42 and the Powerball 10.
The lump-sum payout for tomorrow night’s draw will be $244.8 million, which is the 7th largest prize to be cashed out in American Lottery history. The largest Powerball jackpot to have ever been awarded to a winner was on the 18th of May, 2014. Gloria MacKenzie of Florida held a single ticket for the grand prize of $600 million.
Players must always be aware of the fact that the jackpot amounts are conservative estimates provided by the lotteries themselves and actually somewhat HIGHER by the time that the draw actually takes place and entries are halted. Here’s an example: The original estimate for Saturday’s Powerball draw was $334 million, but by the time that all the proceeds had been tallied up before draw-time, the jackpot had already swelled to a staggering $255.8 million!
This Powerball prize, a mammoth of a jackpot, is the result of 18 consecutive rollovers. The starting amount was $40 million which was on the 7th of November, 2015. Although no players were lucky enough to match all the winning numbers, they did manage to get themselves some lovely consolation prizes. 4 people matched five numbers and took home a $1 million prize each. These four players were from California, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina.
