As far back as the 1800s, the United States has used lottery programs to generate money needed to build schools, bridges, roads and buildings. For example, rumor has it that Benjamin Franklin purchased Revolutionary War cannons with money from the lottery. In addition, lottery funds helped build universities such as Yale and Harvard as well as numerous libraries, hospitals and orphanages. However, segments of society objected to lotteries as immoral gambling, leading to statewide bans by 1890 (with the exception of Louisiana and Delaware) and an abolishment of the lottery by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1905.
In 1934, the U.S. government created a lottery in Puerto Rico but the rest of mainland United States remained skeptical until the 1960s and 70s, when New Jersey and NY Lottery began sponsoring horse racing sweepstakes.
In 1988, Vermont, Maine and New Hampshire created a joint lottery game for residents, followed a few years later with the creation of the Multi-State Lottery Association (MSLA). The MLSA formed a new game, called LottoAmerica, allowing players to pick six numbers out of 54 with two plays for $1.00.
On April 19, 1992, the MLSA created the Power Ball Lottery to replace LottoAmerica. The game was the first of its kind to use two drums, which means that several prize levels are possible and the jackpot odds get higher while the odds of winning get lower.
The Power Ball Lottery continues to be highly popular in America in many states, including the NY Lottery. Drawings are held twice a week, usually Wednesdays and Saturdays. Tickets cost $2.00 for each entry. In 2001, the Power Play optional multiplier was added to the Power Ball game, allowing winners to multiply potential winnings by up to 5 by paying $3.00 per game instead of $2.00.
On January 15, 2012, the minimum jackpot for the Power Ball became $40 million annually, paid in cash or in 30 graduated annual installments.
To date, the largest Power Ball jackpot hit on February 18, 2006, won by a group of employees at a meat packing plant who had gone in together on a ticket. They won $365 million.
In order to participate in Power Ball, players must choose five numbers between the numbers 1 and 59. A machine randomly generates five numbers for the player, often called a Quick Pick, or the player may specifically choose each five numbers.
In order to win the jackpot, players must match all five white ball numbers and the red Power Ball number.
If the five white balls match but not the red Power Ball, the player wins $1,000,000 in a cash prize.
Answer No, the white balls must match the five drawn numbers but can be in any numerical order. However, if multiple games are played on one ticket, you cannot combine numbers from different games to win.
Answer Go online to see if your ticket matches the winning lottery.
AnswerIf you win less than $600, you take can take the ticket back to the store where the ticket was purchased. You must cash your ticket in the original purchase state but you can do so at any authorized retailer. Just look for the lottery sign in the window, such as the NY Lottery logo. If you win that big jackpot, you must take the ticket to the regional lottery office, where the state will give you a check (after releasing your name and city of residence as well as encouraging you to do a press conference).
Answer Yes, usually between 90 days and one year. Check the back of the ticket for information.
Answer Yes, U.S. residents must pay federal and state income taxes on their winnings.
AnswerGambling of any kind lends itself to some interesting facts about the population that plays the game. For instance, approximately 40 percent of California lottery players are unemployed and individuals in Georgia who make less than $25,000 per year spend three times as much money on lottery tickets than those who earn at least $75,000.
In addition, you only have a 1 in 54 million chance to win a U.S. lottery jackpot. However, you have a 1 in 2 million chance of being struck by lightning, a 1 in 3 million chance of freezing to death and you are 5 times more likely to be eaten by a shark than win the lottery.
Sharks notwithstanding, you never know, today may be your lucky day!
