New York Lottery Powerball Powerball NY

The New York Lottery is 1 of 47 US State Lotteries & District Lotteries that offer the Powerball game – in this case the Powerball New York – as part of its overall portfolio of lottery games.

Powerball is a Multi-State USA Lottery that is run & syndicated across the USA by the Multi State Lottery Association – MUSL and is one of the largest lottery games in the world having produced a record jackpot of an incredible US$ 1.58 BILLION in January 2016. This huge amount is the largest lottery jackpot ever won to date in the history of jackpot lottery games around the world having well beaten the Mega Millions record of the time which stood at US$ 656 MILLION from March 2012.

The very first Powerball draw took place on April 22nd 1992 with 16 USA Lottery companies – who were all members of the MUSL – taking part after the game changed its format and name from Lotto America which had originally started on February 13th 1988.

The New York Powerball lottery first began operations back on January 31st 2010 when the Mega Millions consortium – of which the New York Lottery is a member – entered into a cross-selling agreement with the MUSL – allowing the sales of Powerball across Mega Millions States and Mega Millions across Powerball States.

The New York Powerball works in the same way as the Powerball game works in all the States and Districts in the US that offer the game.

Jackpots start off at US$ 40 Million and ROLLOVER after each draw when the top prize is not won – increasing in size by at least US$ 10 Million each time making for some huge jackpot figures.

6 numbers are drawn in total for the New York Powerball game from 2 separate drawing machines – firstly 5 numbers are drawn from 59 white balls are and then 1 number (the Powerball) is drawn from 35 red balls.
