Powerball Jackpot Surges Over $100 Million: Could You Be Next Overnight Millionaire?


The stakes have just gotten higher as the Powerball jackpot has burgeoned over $100 million, alluring hopeful millionaires after Monday’s drawing offered no winners.

The jackpot was spurred into growth after a resident of Florida was the fortunate claimant of a hefty $215 million Powerball jackpot back on May 6. Proving once again, that with a mere $2 ticket, anyone stands a chance of their life being transformed into an overnight millionaire.

Should a lucky someone strike gold this Wednesday, they would enjoy a windfall of $47 million in lump-sum payment, albeit taken after taxes. Nevertheless, a truly life-changing sum that dwarfs any ordinary lottery gains.

Just after the clock struck 11 p.m. ET on Wednesday, the winning numbers were drawn and announced: 16, 5, 67, 18, 26 and the Powerball: 4. A Power Play increase was on offer as well, allowing winners to potentially multiply their winnings by 2X, 3X, 4X, 5X, or even 10X.

As claimants anxiously checked their tickets, the last winner was an inspirational figure, a survivor of cancer who revealed that he fervently ‘prayed to God’ for his victorious result. With him claiming a mammoth share of the $1.3 billion Powerball, it leaves one wondering if fortune could favor them similarly.

If you’re itching to try your fate, a simple trip to your local convenience store, gas station, or grocery can set things in motion. The standard Powerball ticket requires you to select six numbers in total. Five from a pool ranging between numbers 1 to 69, and one red Powerball from a cluster of numbers between 1 and 26.

Alternatively, if an immediate game is more your style, the “Quick Pick” function provides you with computer-generated numbers on an instantly printed Powerball ticket. Drawings are held on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. And as always, when there’s no jackpot winner, the cash prize skyrockets upwards by millions.

Those dwelling in Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Puerto Rico, Texas, Washington D.C., and West Virginia fortunately have online access to play, through Jackpocket, the official digital lottery courier. The app offered by Jackpocket helps streamline the process, as you can select your game, pick your numbers, place an order, and collect your winnings on your smartphone or home computer.
