Lottery fever swept the globe in January 2016 when the American Powerball set a new world record with a $1.58 billion jackpot. Three winning tickets shared that amazing prize; each of them received a lump sum cash payment of $327.8 million.
The current Powerball jackpot is set at $310 million. With two weekly draws, and increased ticket sales, the jackpot could rollover and in a very short time pass the $1 billion mark. And if the Powerball doesn’t set a new record, its rival American lottery, the Mega Millions, could be the one to award a top prize never previously imagined.
With jackpots in the hundreds of millions of dollars, excitement swells all over the world. Lottery fans everywhere want to play for a prize that will make their wildest dreams come true. The odds of winning the jackpot may seem insurmountable, but eventually someone wins the top prize. The only way to participate, it seems, is by rushing to the nearest retail store to purchase tickets.
Or is it? What about the millions of lottery fans around the globe who eye the American jackpots with envy yet are unable to fly to the United States to buy tickets? Are they to be left out of the action? Not if they play the lottery with an online ticket purchasing service such as theLotter.com.
