The Powerball Lottery is the United States' biggest and most famous lottery. In January 2016 it became the first lottery in the world to offer a jackpot of over $1 billion USD. Powerball gives players the opportunity to win life-changing prices for less than a cup of coffee. And for just £2.00 you can now enjoy this incredible lottery from across the pond.
In January 2016 PowerBall made history by becoming the first ever lottery to offer a ten-figure jackpot. By the time the jackpot was won, on the 13th of January, it had exceeded £1 billion. Three winners, from California, Florida and Tennessee, shared the prize.
The largest single-winner jackpot was from the draw of May 18th, 2013, when Gloria C. MacKenzie from Florida won $590.5 million (approx. £411.8 million) after the jackpot had rolled over a total of eight times.
Until now you had to be a US resident to play, but thanks to Lottoland, the UK's leading lottery betting company, Powerball's massive jackpots are now open to British players.
Huge Jackpots: Powerball has some of the world's biggest jackpots and is the current world record holder having been the first to break the $1 billion mark in January 2016.
Nine different prize tiers with a 25:1 chance of winning any prize.

The First Billion Pound Jackpot In History
By the beginning of 2016 PowerBall's jackpot was already set to break the world jackpot record held by MegaMillions. By the middle of the first week it had already smashed that record and went on to become the first jackpot in history to exceed a billion dollars. That weekend, despite an unprecedented level of interest, the jackpot rolled over again, now climbing to over a billion pounds!
First Time Player Scoops $90 Million Jackpot
A first-time Powerball player won a $90 million jackpot last week after buying two tickets on impulse.
Lisa Quam had taken a break from her Thanksgiving cooking to nip to the local grocery store. When the cashier asked if she’d like to play Powerball, feeling full of holiday spirit she decided to throw caution to the wind and give it a whirl.
Mega Millions has emerged as Powerball's main rival in the United States having closely emulated the features which made Powerball such a success. If you are wondering how the USA's biggest multi-state mega lotteries compare against each other here is a side-by-side analysis to help you decide which is better:
|Format||5 from 69 + 1 from 26
|5 from 56 + 1 from 46
|Top Jackpot||$1.586 billion||$656,000,000|
As you can see, Powerball and Mega Millions are actually quite similar. Mega Millions has slightly better odds of winning but results in smaller jackpots, while Powerball remains the world record holder.
Both lotteries have their own strengths and weaknesses but in our opinion Powerball is the best choice – if you want to go after huge jackpots why settle for second place?
