How it all began.
The USA Powerball lottery was originally called America Lotto, however, after just a few years, after its foundation, the lottery got the name by which it is known today. The USA Powerball was initiated by the American MUSL Association., which not only developed the rules of the lottery game, but also continued to improve them over the following years. So, eg, just four years after the creation of the lottery, a new option appeared in it called "powerplay", thanks to which all winnings (excluding jackpots) could be increased several times. This option is valid to this day..
From the very beginning, the lottery organizers assumed, that it will be possible to buy tickets not for her only in those states, where the Mega Millions lottery was not held, which at that time was the largest in the United States and covered 21 state. A little bit later, representations of both lotteries were able to conclude an agreement that, that lottery tickets are like USA Powerball, so on Mega Millions can be sold without hindrance in all 44 states. All the money, received through the USA Powerball lottery, go directly to the budgets of the participating states, each of which independently decides, what to spend this money on. Practice shows, that in most cases, proceeds, received from lotteries, is aimed at the development and maintenance of state educational programs.
Today, Powerball lottery tickets can be bought in almost all states with the exception of Alabama., Alaska, Wyoming, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, New Mexico, South Carolina, Dakota and California.
Recently, namely 15 january 2012 of the year, the lottery celebrated its 20th birthday, in honor of which the possible sizes of prizes were noticeably increased, as well as the probability of getting a winning combination. A similar result was achieved due to the fact, what did not play the lottery now 39 rooms, as it was before, and 35, making it much easier to guess the winning combination. Simultaneously with the exclusion from the lottery of four game numbers, the sizes of the original jackpots were also revised (now they are twice as large) and ticket prices. The Power Play option has been replaced by a fixed odds, which increases the incentive prize to $2 million, and all other winnings in 4 times. More recently, the coefficient “powerplay” was revised again, as a result of which the winnings on the secondary prizes have increased significantly.
The last state, who joined the rest of the Powerball lottery, became California, and it happened in November 2012 of the year. The very first Powerball draw was drawn in California in April 2013 of the year. One of the main features of the lottery in the "Golden State" is that, that the "powerplay" option does not work here, however, at the same time, participants have the opportunity to win an almost unlimited amount of money, and the amount of prizes here directly depends on the number of lottery tickets sold.
