Get Ready for the Biggest Jackpots with Powerball Online
When it comes to lotteries, the US Powerball lottery trumps the competition hands down. In the USA, this lottery is enjoyed across 46 states & overseas territories. It is a shared mega-jackpot game. The Powerball had a rather humble start as Lotto America, back in 1988, but it was changed to Powerball in 1992. The first Powerball draw happened on 22 April, 1992. The Powerball Lottery initially used two drums to draw numbers from. Nowadays, this double drum idea is used all over the world in the Powerball Australia, the EuroMillions, Thunderball in the UK and scores of other lotteries. By 2001, a multiplier feature was added to the play options - the famous and lucrative Power Play option.
