It may not be $1.5 billion, but that doesn’t mean entering the next Powerball drawing doesn’t give you the chance to strike it RICH! HollywoodLife.com’s got you covered with the time of the drawing: Click through to find out!
There were only three winners for the unprecedented $1.5 billion Powerball lotto drawing on January 13, so we doubt any of you reading this for the January 16 edition are them (If you are — geez, leave some for the rest of us!). The clock is ticking until someone is crowned the grand winner. Click through to find out when!
The Powerball drawing will happen, as always, at 10:59pm ET! The highly-anticipated lottery drawing happens every Saturday and Wednesday at the same time, as participants anxiously clutch their tickets and wait on the edge of their seats at home for those balls to roll into place. Good luck to all you HollywoodLifers who bought tickets for this round!
After the record $1.5 billion Powerball drawing on January 13, many people seem to think that the prize purse just reset to zero. Not the case! There’s a whopping $40 million to be given away to those lucky persons with the winning combo of numbers! Though it seems like a petty sum in comparison to over a billion bucks, think about how much cash that really is: even after taxes, you’re still pocketing $24.8 million! Holy smokes!
The cutoff time for entering the lottery is 9:45pm ET, a little over an hour before the big drawing. Be sure not to miss it and get your tickets as soon as possible! Even if you don’t win the Powerball, there’s still a chance to win major money. While three people took home the jackpot in the January 13, “smaller” prizes of $1 million and $2 million were awarded to many. You may be one!
