It’s been three months since the Powerball has seen a winner, which is why the prize is so big just six months after the record-setting $1.6 billion jackpot that was won in January. This game has rolled over 23 times since being reset to the starting amount of $40 million in May. The $478 million amount is the eighth biggest lottery prize in United States history, and the fifth largest amount in Powerball history.
This huge Powerball drawing happens to be taking place less than three weeks after one lucky Indiana player claimed a $536 million Mega Millions jackpot, which means there’s definitely hope in this Powerball game! So what are your odds of winning the nearly $500 million jackpot? 292.2 million-to-1, according to the Associated Press…so you’re saying there’s a chance!
If you happen to be the lucky winner of this game, the payout will be $478 million over 30 years or, if you so choose, a lump-sum amount of $330.6 million (which is before federal taxes). Let’s be honest, you can’t really go wrong either way!
