One night after the $1.6 billion was won by a ticket holder in South Carolina the Powerball draw for the $600 million went unclaimed and rolled over to a whopping $750 million, making it the third largest ever in US lottery history.
The lump sum option is a massive $428.6 million.
It is an exciting time to be a lottery player,” said Powerball chief David Barden, saying that revenues from lottery ticket sales "benefit great causes." And with two American lotteries breaking jackpot records in a single week lottery ticket are also soaring.
The draw is taking place this weekend giving players more than enough time to pick up plenty of tickets!
