Powerball Draw on July 16 Worth $50,000,000
Today, Wednesday, 16 July will witness a $50,000,000 Powerball draw with 43 states participating in the event, including Washington D.C. and the US Virgin Islands.
With overall odds of winning a prize coming in at 1 in 31.85, chances are great for anyone who plays to win a prize of some cash amount. All it takes is a single number match to win cash. All prize amounts are set dollar amounts except for the grand prize, which varies with every draw. California is the one exception to this rule, where prize amounts are pooled and determined by sales and the number of winners.
Last week didn’t see a lucky winner and the prize amount rolled over and grew as a result. Without another winner this time around the same thing will happen and continue to happen until the games grand prize is won.
Powerplay odds are great as well, offering winning players a chance to multiply their winnings anywhere from 2x to 5x the prize amount.
There are nine ways to win in all when playing the Powerball lottery. Play by purchasing your tickets online or at a licensed retailer for as little as $2 per play.
