The US Powerball Lottery officials are tremendously thrilled to announce that for a long time, no player has managed to win the recent jackpot prize. Therefore, after several rollovers, the jackpot prize money for the US Powerball jackpot prize is now $620 million.
Things just keep getting better for the US Powerball Lottery players, as they now have a chance to win more than half a billion dollars.
The US Powerball Lottery team has revealed that after rolling over another time, the $620 million prize money has entered the league of top 10 largest prizes. The prize money is now among the largest lottery prize jackpots ever accumulated in the history of the US Powerball Lottery.
The lottery officials have revealed that as no player managed to match all six numbers from the draw, the $570 million jackpot prize money remained unclaimed on Wednesday, September 29 draw.
Although it was an unfortunate situation for all players participating in the particular draw, it has come as a fortune for players for the upcoming draw. Now, the players participating in the upcoming Saturday, October 2, 2021 draw will have the opportunity of winning the $620 million jackpot prize.
If any player from the upcoming draw manages to match the five primary and the sixth (Powerball number), then the jackpot prize money would be theirs. The stakes for the game are now really high.
A surprising thing about the draw is that even if a player does manage to win $620 million, they would still be $980 million behind the largest jackpot prize ever won.
The largest jackpot prize ever given out to the US Powerball jackpot prize winner was $1.6 billion, which was won back in January of 2021.
It has happened after a long time that the jackpot prize for the US Powerball Lottery has kept rolling over for such a long time. It was back in June when the jackpot prize was last won. Since then, the prize money has been rolling over and it is making the game even more exciting.
From June until now, 38 draws have taken place but none has produced a winner of the jackpot prize for the US Powerball game.
The last jackpot prize money won for the US Powerball Lottery was back in June where a player from Florida managed to win $286 million.
As always, the winner of the jackpot prize for the upcoming draw would have two prize claim options to choose from. The player would either go for the cash value or go for the annuity plan. In the annuity plan, the player can keep receiving installments for the prize money for up to 30 years.
If the player goes for the cash value prize money, then they will be able to take home $446 million after-tax deductions.
