The size of the Powerball Jackpot and all of the other Powerball prizes on the various levels depends entirely upon how many Powerball tickets have been sold in the days between the last Powerball lotto draw and the latest one.
Simply, the more Power Ball tickets that have been sold across the USA and the rest of the world – the bigger the Power Ball jackpot will be and the higher the other Powerball prize amounts will be.
So the above Powerball odds table is based on the averages of the Powerball Results but with the Powerball lotto being played right around the world – you can be sure that the Powerball prizes will be some of the largest available.
One thing that sets the Powerball Lotto apart from the majority of other world lotteries is the Powerball jackpot rollover.
If there is no winner of the Power Ball jackpot – the top prize will rollover onto the following Powerball draw – increasing in size each time it is not won.
The exciting thing with the Powerball jackpot is that there is absolutely no limit at all as to how many times it can rollover – which means that the jackpot is frequently the biggest to be won in the world and regularly reaches some incredible sizes indeed.
Whilst most other jackpot lottery games from around the world rollover in the same way as the Powerball Lotto does – it is really the large size of the increases in the Powerball prize jackpot that happens and the fact that there is no cap on the number of rollovers that can occur that makes the Power Ball Lottery stand out from the rest of world lottery games.
The large Power Ball jackpot increases that occur each time the top prize isn't won are mainly due to the vast number of players that the Powerball lotto game has across America and the rest of the world.

Since it began as Lotto America back in 1988 – the Power Ball jackpot has averaged out somewhere between US$ 95.5 Million & US$ 141 Million and – this is the exciting bit – the Power Ball results will very regularly produce jackpots that Rollover to amounts that are very much larger than this.
