The news was announced in Chicago by local officials of the lottery. The said that the huge – jackpot was unbelievable – $587.500.000. As the drawing has been finished, not it is time to search for the winners all over the country.
The drawing was held on Wednesday at night at now the winning combination of balls is available. And the winning numbers are 5, 16, 22, 23 and 29. And there was one more ball, which lead to jackpot – it was 6.
It was told to us afterwards, that from the very beginning the reward or jackpot has been smaller that at the very end. The cash option reached $384.000.000, and later it must be divided into equal parts.
There also have been a lot of other players, who got the winnings but smaller than the main one. Totally they were about 8 and a half million players all over the country. Among those players there were people, who won prizes of million dollars each. They were 60 people from different states. Those, who won a million prize managed to match not 6, but 5 numbers. Several of those tickets were sold in different parts of New Jersey. Also there were two states, in which several people bought winning ticket too.
The officials still did not find out whether separate people bought the tickets. It is possible that it was a group of people. In the morning the officials did not announce any concrete information, because they still did not have it and even the names of winner are not found. But they can find out the places, where the tickets were sold and they will soon announce them all. All the officials got messages and calls right after the drawing. But some of them did not answer anything and did not want give any comments upon the situation or whatever.
After such huge winning many people quickly went to the shops to buy tickets. The money inspired people to play more or to play at all. Some of the buyers have not played the lottery regularly.
As it was told on one of the TV channels in the report about the lottery, abut 175.000.000 people took part in the latest drawing. So, the chances to win the jackpot were very little. But this time the game of Powerball was the greatest people have ever played and not any difficulties and chances disturbed them. More and more people went to buy they ticket or two. It was expected to sell a good amount of tickets, but the rates became higher. Every minute about 130.000 people all over the country bought tickets in different shops. So, all in all they bought even more than $160.000.000.
At the same time the night of the drawing – Wednesday – set a record of selling tickets – it was $563.000.000.
The representative of the lottery game announced that they will not stay at one place and will try to repeat the record one more time if it will be possible. They will set up a new jackpot for the nearest night drawing and will be waiting for more people to come and play. The future jackpot will be set at about $40.000.000, which is also very big and many people would like to get it. It is also a good challenge for the lottery owner too.
In earlier drawing there were 16 times, when no one won the jackpot by not managing to match all the numbers. But the last time the situation was a bit different and there was a big hope that the winner will be found and the jackpot will find its owner.
There is a special topic after the lottery drawings. Those, who won big sums, need to be wise enough and deserve special attention. There were lots of people, who won also and also people, who looked at winners from the other side. They all have enough experience, which allows them to give some wise advice to the future and present winners. The main thing is that you must not spend the money crucially and hope that they will be with you for the rest of your life. Those, who invest and use them wisely, multiple their money for the whole life. And those, who do not know what to do with the money and spend them, day after day without special thinking, will be soon left alone somewhere in a trailer park.
