Powerball jackpot at $700 million but sales drop during eclipse

theLotter.com: USD 650 Million US Powerball Sees Ticket Sales Jump by 740pc Powerball numbers were drawn for a possibility at 535 million dollars big stake

Furthermore, the following drawing, on Wednesday, will now be an expected $650 million, Powerball said. To have a chance at winning the jackpot, players must buy a $2 ticket before the drawing and choose all six numbers correctly. While there was no jackpot victor in the drawing, IL players won more than 165,000 prizes ranging from $4 to $50,000.

The longer odds also made it more likely for the Powerball jackpots to grow to a gargantuan size before a winning ticket is sold.

How to play Powerball: Players pay $2 and select five white balls from the first set of 69 numbers plus a single red ball, the Powerball, from a second set of 26 numbers. The nation's biggest pot totaled $1.6 billion in 2016, and three different ticket holders claimed the prize.

There are two jackpot options for payment: the $700 million jackpot prize paid out over 29 years in 30 graduated payments or the cash option of about $443 million.

South Korea's Moon Confident There'll Be No War With North
During a news conference on Thursday he said, "I can confidently say there will not be a war again on the Korean Peninsula". South Korean President Moon Jae-in speaks during a press conference marking his first 100 days in office on Thursday.

Purchasing the $1 Power Play option allows a victor to increase lower-tier prizes by a factor of 2, 3, 4 or 5, depending on the Power Play number drawn.

That means you are actually more likely to be killed by an asteroid (1 in 700,000), be struck by lightning while drowning (1 in 183 million) or give birth to quadruplets (1 in 729,000).

44 states including both Minnesota and Wisconsin play the Powerball lottery.

The drawing will be Wednesday at 10:59 p.m. Ticket sales in Wisconsin will end at 9pm CT that night. Install our official mobile app, like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram and Twitter @PALottery.
