The best way to play PowerBall from Europe!
An immigrant from the Dominican Republic has won one of the largest lottery jackpots in the USA in the Powerball lottery. The New Jersey lottery player was the only one to have the five winning numbers drawn and the correct Powerball number on his ticket at the last draw, cracking a $338 million, or nearly €263 million, lottery jackpot. According to US media, the 44-year-old father of five still can't believe his luck.
The $338 million jackpot is the fourth largest pot in Powerball's history. At the end of November last year, a player in Arizona and a married couple in Missouri hit the highest jackpot in the lottery, $550 million. The highest single win in the Powerball lottery, $365 million, was won by a player from Nebraska in 2006.
The lottery is played in 42 states of the USA. In order to win the highest class pot at Powerball, the players need 5 right numbers out of 59 and a matching Powerball number out of 35. The chance to guess the five correct winning numbers and the power number is approximately 1 in 175 million.
