Did Anyone Win The $750 Million Powerball Jackpot? There Could Be Another $1 Billion Drawing On The Way

Did Anyone Win The $750 Million Powerball Jackpot? There Could Be Another $1 Billion Drawing On The Way
Did anyone win Saturday's $ 750 million Powerball drawing? If not, then America had another billionaire sometime next week.
The October 27 Powerball drawing rose to $ 750 million for a month-long streak with no jackpot winners. The prize was among the five largest in lottery history, though it was eclipsed by the consecutive billion-dollar Mega Millions drawings this week that culminated with a $ 1.5 billion winner on Tuesday. As Time noted, the largest jackpot of all time was $ 1.586 billion in the year 2016.
Powerball announces if the person wins $ 750 million prize, and if not then the prize will approach the $ 1 billion mark again, as the unawarded prize money rolls over and in excess ticket sales added.
The fact that three of the top six lottery drawings of all time have taken place during the span of about a week is not entirely a coincidence. Officials for both the Mega Millions and Powerball in recent years have changed the odds, making it more difficult to win by adding extra balls to the drawing. This also had the effect of making jackpots big, with long loss streaks pushing the prizes toward $ 1 billion with greater frequency that before
Lottery officials said the gigantic jackpots also attract more of the times in the buyer. That has been reflected in recent drawings. The site, which tracks ticket sales, noted that about 120 million tickets were sold for Wednesday's $ 620 million drawing. Just a little more than a week ago, the $ 314 million powerball drawing attracted just 33 million ticket sales.
As CBS News noted, close to two-third of Americans play the lottery, generating nearly $ 73 billion in annual sales. That means the average American spends about $ 223 every year on lottery tickets. As the news outlet's business analyst Jill Schlesinger explained, the majority of people realize that they will not be able to get the prize, but like to dream about it anyway.
"Our obsession with lotteries, with gambling, is that unicorn feeling of, like, 'maybe it'll be me,'" she said. "They just want to take a moment out of their big day."
