Wednesday night's Powerball Jackpot has 206 million reasons why you should think about an online lottery ticket.
The current estimated jackpot for Wednesday night's Powerball draw is $206 million. For the cash option, a lucky ticket holder would take home a jaw-dropping $124.4 million. The six winning balls will come rolling out of the basket at 22:59 ET and as long as you've got yourself a ticket there is a chance that you could win. The Powerball lottery has not been won since December 2016 and has since continued to rollover and reach the impressive amount that it stands at now.
How to Get Tickets
Online lottery tickets have become the most popular method of buying lottery tickets and a lot of this has to do with how convenient it is. Online tickets are exactly the same as a store-bought ticket, but the online version can be purchased from any computer or smart mobile device, as long as an internet connection is available. Even if you are not located in the United States you can still have the same opportunity to win the biggest jackpot of 2017 to date, and it couldn't be any easier.
The US Powerball is the most popular lottery with more tickets purchased in the bi-weekly draw than any other lottery in the world. This is due to the fact that out of the ten biggest jackpots ever won, the Powerball was behind seven of them. This of course includes the world record $1.6 billion won almost exactly a year ago in January 2016. This draw is no where near last January's amount, but with $206 million on the line, having a ticket just makes sense.
