There are few lotto players in the world that have not heard about the mighty Powerball Lottery Game.  This is one of the few lotto games in the world that consistently delivers jackpots of many millions and sometimes even hundreds of millions of US dollars.   Every week this game is responsible for creating millionaires by the dozen, and according to the law of chance you and I have equal chances of winning–if we have a ticket that is :-)

An awesome lottery is born

The first appearance of this great game was under the name of Lotto America, the name was subsequently changed to Powerball on the 19th of April 1992 and it proved to be an instant success among lotto players in the US.  One of the major drawing of the game was the large payouts that it promised, the other was it was uncomplicated and easy how to play, and of course the low cost of the tickets.

Players’ interest grew with each major jackpot prize winning and slowly more and more States and Territories adopted it.  By 2012 44 States and other jurisdictions are now offering it to their citizens.

How to play

The game is very easy to play and the prize dividends are fair and clearly set out making it one of the most popular and successful lottery game in the world.

You simply pick five numbers ( From 1 to 59)  and then you pick the Powerball (From 1 to 35).  

The Powerball number is independently drawn from the primary numbers.  So for example a result such as 12 28 33 45 49 with the Powerball 12 is a possibility; in this case the number 12 appears in both.

Power Play Option

You also have the option to increase the payout of your dividend by opting in the Power Play Option.  This includes and additional charge for the price of the ticket.  This is payable when you purchase the ticket.  Considering the enormous payouts offered, the costs of playing and the optional Power Play are insignificant.

How to set a budget 

The important issue to remember is always to set out a budget and stick to that budget.  In my case, I am prepared to dedicate no more than 3% of my income in lottery tickets.  It is also essential to remember that lotteries,  must never be seen as a solution for a financial difficulty.

These games are just a fun way to tempt fate to transform you into an instant millionaire.

If you find yourself squandering large amounts of money that you cannot afford to lose in lottery tickets or worse gambling money allocated to family expenses seek immediate help.

A gambling addiction will destroy your life and the lives of your loved ones and has the potential of causing you to become homeless or even worse because of criminal convictions.   So don’t do it.
