"All about the Powerball Jackpot & see the CURRENT Power Ball Jackpot"
Most jackpot lottery games increase in size when they are not won by way of a Rollover until such time that the winning lottery numbers are selected.
Having said that – some lotteries Rollover more times than others and therefore have much bigger incremental increases each time the top prize is not won – thus producing some huge jackpots.
This is just what makes the Powerball jackpot stand out among the vast majority of world lotteries – the size that its jackpot often reaches – to the point of creating a world record lottery jackpot.
The Powerball jackpot figure and results are eagerly awaited twice every week after the draw has taken place every Wednesday and Saturday evening.
The majority of lottery jackpots around the world tend to PEAK at anywhere between US$ 5 Million & US$ 15 Million and this, of course, would be a fantastic sum of money to win.
Since it began as Lotto America back in 1988 – the Powerball lottery jackpot prize has AVERAGED out at somewhere inbetween US$ 95.5 Million & US$ 141 Million and the exciting thing is that very regularly the Power Ball Results will produce jackpots that rollover to amounts that are very much larger than this.
You will see that – more often than not – the Powerball lottery jackpot is advertised at anything upwards of US$ 100 Million, even US$ 200 Million and very often US$ 300 Million or more making it among the TOP 2 World Lottery games in the whole of the lottery industry and is one of the richest lotteries available.
Every now & then the Power Ball Jackpot will rise to even greater heights of over US$ 300 Million and even US$ 400 Million or more by which time the whole of the lottery playing world will be sitting up and taking notice.
Since various changes were made to the USA Powerball – jackpots have climbed to nearly US$ 600 Million and shocked the lottery world when the US$ 1 BILLION barrier was shattered.
This is what makes the Powerball Lottery such a firm favourite with so many millions of USA Lottery players right across America and the rest of the world.
The size of the Powerball jackpot figures mentioned above are frequent and most other world lotteries are quite simply not capable of producing lottery jackpots so high – the reasons for this we will explain shortly.
Most world lottery jackpot games that increase in size when the top prize is not won have a limit on how many times they can rollover before they roll down with the prize then being shared among the next level of prize winners.
With the Powerball – there is no limit at all as to how many times the Power Ball jackpot can rollover when no-one correctly picks the Powerball winning numbers.
The fact that the Powerball lottery can rollover an unlimited number of times is one of the main reasons why the Powerball jackpot can reach such high levels.
