This Wednesday evening, the 23rd of November, Powerball lotto players have the opportunity to turn their life into a multi-millionaire adventure with 340 million Euro. So far there have been 17 consecutive rollovers with no winners. This Wednesday, you could be the one changing all that!
The Powerball lotto jackpot has been rolling over steadily since the 17th of September. Due to the fact that each rollover brings in more revenue, the prize has risen to a staggering sum. Even though it’s not another $1.6 billion lottery prize, 340 million Euro is still a very sweet deal.
If you’re interested in cashing in this Powerball prize, and you’re not quite sure about the details or rules of the game, then here is what you need to know:
Playing the game
Online lottery players can buy Powerball tickets from LuckyLottos.com. Each ticket you buy will give you the opportunity to choose a series of your own lucky numbers. The more tickets you buy, the higher your odds are of winning the jackpot. You can either choose your own numbers or make use of the number generator which acts as a “quick pick” option.
Remember that there is a cut-off time to get your Powerball tickets in before the draw. Make sure not to miss it! It would be a pity because you’d be missing out on so many millions of Euros.
Winning Powerball Lotto
Powerball draws take place every Wednesday and Saturday night. Five white balls are drawn at random from a pool of 69. A single red ball, the Powerball, is drawn from a pool of 26.
In order for you to bag the jackpot, you need to match all five white balls including the red ball. The jackpot is the first tier. To scoop a second-tier prize, which is still just as life-changing, a player must match just the five white balls, in any order, of course.
A Powerball jackpot winner has two choices when it comes to claiming their prize. They can either collect it in the form of a lump sum cash option, or an annuity method. The annual payment plan is spread out over a duration of 29 years. Each annual payment will increase by 5% however, in order to keep up with inflation and rising living costs.
Many people all over the world have their own unique ways of getting luck to be on their side. Some are very superstitious, and others have their own quirky rituals for getting the Goddess of Luck to bless them with a miraculous jackpot win. A past Powerball lottery winner conducted their own quirky ritual to get lucky, and they ended up winning $208.6 million! Read their story below!
The winner was a syndicate who worked for a Cheese company. So, how exactly did they win their massive Powerball lotto fortune? Well, they rubbed Buddha’s belly, of course! The representative of the syndicate is Donald Diedrich. He is the one wearing the hat. The win took place in Fond du lac, Wisconsin.
Their Powerball syndicate is named “100 miracles”, and the name couldn’t be more perfectly suited! The 100 cheese company workers tried a number of ways in which they could increase their luck for the winning the jackpot, one of which, ended up with rubbing the belly of a small statue of Buddha.
“We don’t know if it was this Buddha that brought us luck. We don’t know if it was our prayers to God that were answered. We have no idea, all we know is that we are just grateful,” said Mary
Mary is 55-years-old, and she worked the second shift at the Sargento Cheese factory in Plymouth for three years before this life-changing win that happened on the 5th of August, 2006.
Upon realization that they were the jackpot winners, the team hired a lawyer to help them split the winnings equally and to learn how best to look after the windfall.
They had a mini press event at the store where they bought the ticket. The winning ticket was bought at “Ma and Pa’s Grocery Express”. The store is now aptly known as “Miracle Mile”. Miracle Mile was a street where several stores sold winning lottery tickets during the 1990s.
Of the 100 winners, Mary said that three left the company. One retired, one started their own business with his wife, and the third pursued their own dreams. Mary plans to keep working at the factory but is putting money aside to buy a house by the lake in Wisconsin.
Each person has the freedom to choose how they want to receive their winnings. Each winner will receive $670,000 after taxes if they want to go for the lump sum payout.
The store that sold the winning ticket, Ma and Pa’s, received a $100,000 bonus. The store also managed to sell a ticket worth $6.5 million back in 1994.
The chief executive officer of the cheese factory said that each of the syndicate members plays a different role in the company. These range from cutting and shredding cheese, to loading trucks and performing routine maintenance on the machinery and equipment. Most of the employees earn around $50,000 a year, so you can imagine their joy at coming into such a great deal of money.
So many stories of lottery winners prove to us that luck can find you no matter where in the world you are, or what you do. From the richest to the poorest, luck favors nobody in particular. Just like the numbers election, your winning moment is chosen completely at random!
On the one hand, if we look at it philosophically, luck is not as random as you might think! Before that lottery ticket won someone a Powerball jackpot, they first had to buy it! The moral of the story is, if you want something life-changing to happen to you, you’ve got to go out of your way to make it happen. You cannot sit back. You have to be part of the magic if you hope to experience the magic!
That’s all the wisdom we have to share with you for now. It’s up to you to make the next step!
