THE HISTORY OF Powerball
Powerball is an American lottery game sold by 45 lotteries as a shared jackpot game. It is coordinated by the Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL), a non-profit organization formed by an agreement with various U.S. lotteries. Since the change in format on 15th January 2012, Powerball's minimum advertised jackpot is $40 million (in the form of an annuity) with a potential of nine-figure prizes. There is no maximum jackpot for the Powerball, and it will roll over until all the numbers are matched.
The biggest Powerball jackpot to date was $590,500,000 won in May 2013 by one winning ticket in Florida, making it the 3rd biggest ever lotto win of all time among all lotteries worldwide.
Powerball's predecessor began in 1988; the multi-jurisdictional game was known as Lotto*America. The game, and name, was changed to Powerball on 19th April 1992. Powerball's first drawing was held three days later on 22nd April 1992.
When it was launched Powerball became the first game to use two drums. Using two drums to draw numbers from offers more manipulation, simultaneously allowing high jackpot odds, numerous prize levels, and low overall odds of winning. A Powerball ticket can provide a win by matching only one number.
The most notable Powerball jackpot winner has to be Gloria MacKenzie. The 84 year old widow, who at the time of winning was living in a small shack, won $590.5 million in May 2013. Gloria purchased the winning ticket in her local grocery store in Zephyrhills after another customer let her cut the queue. The huge jackpot is the biggest single win in the history of the American lottery. B. Raymond Buxton decided to have a bit of a laugh when he discovered he’d won $425.3 million on the Powerball. Keeping the country in suspense as to who the winner was, Buxton waited to announce he was the winner on April 1st. But this was no April Fools joke. Buxton had purchased a ticket for the February 19th draw but the huge jackpot up for grabs enticed him to purchase another, and it was this second ticket that scooped him the prize money! On December 25th 2002, Jack Whittaker won $314.9 million on the Powerball jackpot. At the time, it was the biggest prize claimed by a single winning ticket and Jack soon made headlines, not just for his fantastic luck but for the fact that he already had a net worth of more than $17 million prior to his win! The August 7th draw in 2013 made three lucky ticket holders millionaires overnight. One of the ticket holders however was actually a 16 member group known as Ocean’s 16. The group of colleagues chartered a bus to validate their ticket together at the Lottery Headquarters. After tax, each member of the group received $3,872,445.94. However it wasn’t just Ocean’s 16 that were made the only millionaires in New Jersey that draw. For the first time in 20 years, two winning tickets were sold in the same state and another New Jersey resident scooped $86,054,355 before tax. The third jackpot winner was from Minnesota.

Where to Watch the Results
The Powerball results take place at the Florida Lottery’s studio in Tallahassee. For those with access to American television stations, you’ll be able to watch the live draw on TV. Alternatively you can wait for the results to be published officially online or follow social media threads such as Twitter to see the winning numbers as they shoot up the shaft and onto the rail.
The Powerball uses a machine called the Halogen to randomly select the winning numbers. There are four of these machines in total, although only two are ever used per draw. The remaining two are used as a reserve should they need to be used as backup. The first machine selects five numbers of white balls between 1 and 59 and the second releases one red Powerball between 1 and 35. The machines operate using a turntable which mixes the numbered balls before selecting one at random and into the shaft onto the display rail.
