Just when you thought the most exciting lottery game on the planet couldn’t get any better…it’s getting better!
With the addition of Florida to the states that sell Powerball tickets, there are changes being made that many people will find very exciting. Here are some of the big ones:
1. The starting jackpot will now be $20 million – that’s the largest starting jackpot of any lottery game in the world.
2. Currently the average jackpot is around $95 million. The average jackpot in the new games is expected to be around $141 million.
3. More than 3 million extra prizes will be won each year.
The price of the Powerball ticket will still be just $1. Of course, with these new numbers, your odds of winning will not be quite as good. The odds of winning any given prize will be about 1 in 35. And the chances of winning the Powerball jackpot? Around 1 in 195,000,000.
Still, you never know…
