These 5 States Have the Most Powerball Jackpot Wins
You have to buy a ticket to play the Powerball game. Each Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday night ticket holders in 45 states along with the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and Washington D.C, are checking their numbers to see if they are walking away with a prize.
It's $2 for a Powerball ticket and if you pick the correct Powerball number for the drawing then you get your money back. If you pick the correct Powerball and all five correct numbers for the rest of the ticket then you win the jackpot.
For Saturday night's drawing the jackpot is estimated to be at $760 million. That's plenty of money for you and your family for a lifetime. If you accept the annuity, you get the full amount of the money, but you can also choose a cash option which ends up being about half of the jack prize amount.
One of the big pieces of advice from officials from Powerball has for each player is the minute you get your ticket in your hand turn it over and sign your name to it. That way even if you lose your tickets someone can't claim your prize. So, who has the most wins?
