Changes as of 15-Jan-2012
Powerball went through a significant change:
- The price of a single field was doubled. The price of the Powerplay option has not changed.
- The 1-39 range of the Powerball number was changed to 1-35.
- Powerplay is not anymore a multiplier. It's got it's own price table created and therefore it extended the old price table.
365.000.000 dollars were won in February of 2006 by eight meat plant workers from Nebraska, who bought a single ticket together, and won the jackpot with it.
A look in the future
340.000.000 dollars were won by a family in Oregon. They put together 40 dollars to buy tickets, and they became lucky to hit this great jackpot.
Recently the USA Powerball organizers started to work on creating a worldwide lottery game, with the largest jackpot of the world.
