History of the Powerball lottery
To 1992 the Powerball lottery existed under a different name - Lotto America. Once the game changed and became a multi-state lottery, which we know today, the name Lotto America was dropped. However, since November 2017 of the year Lotto America has been relaunched in a new format, offering big prizes for participants. Visit the dedicated Lotto America page for more information.
When the Powerball lottery was launched in 1992 year, took part in it only in 15 states, and the players were required to choose five main numbers from 1 to 45, as well as one Powerball from a separate set from 1 to 45. The minimum jackpot was 2 million dollars.
The game has evolved continuously over time, and c 2001 year there was an option "Power Play", with which the starting jackpot increased to 40 million dollars, and more states have joined the lottery.
There was an unusual incident in 2005 year, when record 110 players won the second round prize, in which only a few winners are likely to win. Investigation has begun, which resulted in, that many players used cookie box predictions for their numbers.
The biggest addition to the Powerball lottery happened in 2010 year, when an agreement was reached between the Interstate Lottery Association (MUSL), which controls the Powerball game, and the Mega Millions consortium, which allowed local operators to sell tickets to two popular lotteries at once. 12 new lottery operators started selling tickets for Powerball draws.
Numerous changes have been made to the number matrix over the years, designed to change the odds of winning and create big jackpots more often. Powerball regularly makes headlines around the world for its massive prizes, including record 590 million dollars, won by 84-year-old Gloria Mackenzie in 2013 year, and the latest changes in October 2015 years helped to regularly offer bigger jackpots.
Drawing 1,58 billion dollars in January 2016 of the year became the first ever jackpot, which consisted of ten digits. Three winning tickets belonged to John and Lisa Robinson of Munford, Tennessee, David Kalchmidt and Maureen Smith of Melbourne Beach Florida, as well as Marvin and May Acosta from Chino Hills, California.
