Excitement builds over 700 million dollar Powerball Jackpot

Winning numbers were drawn this morning for a US Powerball jackpot of an estimated US$700 million (RM2.9 billion), one of the largest in the lottery's history.

Powerball lottery ticket sales are seeing a big uptick with a Wednesday jackpot at $700 million.

"The excitement and public awareness created by the increased jackpot is a good time to remind players to play responsibly".

"The reason you buy it is because that secures the future for all your family", Keith Davidson, another Powerball player says. Any five numbers that you choose no matter what you choose for your ticket, they all have the same chance of winning.

"Our hunches are better, our second sight is better, our instincts are better", said psychic Lady Ocalat.

Wednesday night's Powerball Jackpot created a lot of buzz across the area, causing many people to find the nearest location to purchase those lucky tickets.


AOL SUPPLIED "I've called them and told them I will not be coming back" Mavis Wanczyk said

Three Powerball tickets in California matched 5 of the 6 numbers but no full jackpot winners have been reported in the state so far, according to the California Lottery.

"When you play on our platform, you don't have to worry about losing a ticket or your dog eating it", added DiMatteo.

Customers buying the tickets say it is a friendly competition that brings out a hopeful dream in everyone. "You can buy all ten of the most expensive cars made today for you and nine friends". "There's always the 'what if.' A year ago when the draw was this big someone won, and somebody's life was changed, huge". A $448 million prize was claimed in June, and a $435 million jackpot was won in February.

The overall chance of winning any prize is 1 in 24.87.

It's the second-largest lottery jackpot in US history; the cash prize would be almost $444,000,000.
