The US Powerball Lotto jackpot has been rolling over for some time now, just like its fellow US multi-state lottery draw, the Mega Millions Lotto. However, last night the rolling came to an abrupt end for the Mega Millions jackpot, when two lucky ticket holders scooped the massive $190 million rollover jackpot. If you think $190 million is a massive jackpot, the $600 million Powerball jackpot should really get you excited.
The $363 million Powerball Lotto jackpot that was up for grabs on Wednesday night was not won and on Thursday morning Powerball officials were touting a $475 million jackpot for tonight’s draw but since then the jackpot has been revised. This would appear to be for a couple of reasons. Firstly, ticket sales seem to have been brisker than usual for a jackpot of this size plus the annuity payments seem to be greater, further stretching the top prize up to the $600 million level it stands at for tonight’s draw. At $600 million, the current jackpot is the second biggest Powerball Lotto jackpot of all time and the third biggest lottery jackpot in the world ever!
The US Powerball Lotto jackpot has been rolling over for some time now. In fact, the last time that the multi-state lottery’s top prize was won was 30th March, when one lucky ticket holder won the $50 million ($31,367,628.61 cash) jackpot. Since then, the jackpot has evaded capture every single draw.
This has caused the jackpot to grow and grow, increasing in size every draw, snowballing to the massive $270 million that it currently stands at. In just a few hours time, the US Powerball Lotto draw will take place in Florida, when the huge prize goes up for grabs but will the top prize be won or will Wednesday night’s Powerball draw feature a jackpot that exceeds $300 million?
On Friday night the EuroMillions Lottery boasted a SuperDraw, which basically meant that a load of cash was added to the prize fund to make a guaranteed €100 million jackpot and, as the jackpot rolled over, the Tuesday night draw has an estimated rollover jackpot of €111 million to play for. As a bonus for our readers, we are offering a free EuroMillions syndicate entry for anybody who enters via the Lottery Jackpots Facebook Page.

In just a few hours, the biggest of the world’s lottery jackpots goes up for grab in America. Once again, the US Powerball Lotto is grabbing all of the lottery news headlines with a massive top prize, which is up to the $320 million region. Sure, this is a long way off the record Powerball Lotto jackpot, which stands at a mighty $588 million but it’s still a noteworthy chunk of cash and, if won by a single ticket holder, would be one of the biggest lottery jackpots ever won by a single player.
If you haven’t already bought tickets for tonight’s US Powerball Lotto draw and you wanted a shot at the huge jackpot, you will be hoping for yet another rollover this evening but if you are holding tickets for the draw, I imagine you’re hoping like hell that it’s your lucky night, even if you have to share the jackpot with one or two other players.
We kicked off 2013 with a huge Irish Lotto rollover, won at the end of January and worth a staggering €10.6 million. However, that big jackpot seems to have set a trend, as we haven’t seen another jackpot winner on the draw yet and now the Saturday night rollover is heading for €6.5 million!
On Wednesday night, the Irish Lotto jackpot had reached €5.7 million but no one matched all the winning numbers and so it rolls again to Saturday night and now ticket sales are increasing as the jackpot grows.
Midweek, the Lotto jackpot in Ireland came in much higher than expected, at almost €6.2 million but despite high ticket sales for the rollover, no one matched all the winning numbers. The further rollover and estimated high ticket sales mean that Saturday’s Irish Lotto rollover is heading for €7 million and it’s not the only big jackpot up for grabs in Ireland this week!
The biggest winner in Wednesday’s Irish Lotto came from the Lotto Plus 1, where one lucky player from the Midlands of Ireland scooped €350,000. However, the main draw jackpot rolled, creating this bumper weekend draw.
The midweek lottery draws are approaching and for Irish Lotto players it’s an exciting time as no one has won the jackpot for several weeks. The lottery hasn’t yet seen a winner since the New Year, but players will be hoping that all that changes this midweek draw as the Irish Lotto top prize is likely to exceed €6 million!
No one won the €5.5 million jackpot on Saturday night, but over 37,000 lottery players did walk away with a prize from the Irish Lotto draw.
If you’re a regular EuroMillions player, then you’ll already be looking forward to tonight’s big rollover, but if you only Lucky Dip now and then, then you might want to catch up with the news on tonight’s draw. The EuroMillions has rolled three times now, creating a £33 million jackpot for tonight’s draw!
It’s a big rollover and there’s likely to be a lot of interest in the draw, as there always is when the jackpot starts to roll. The EuroMillions is one of the world’s most popular lottery draws and it’s thanks to jackpots such as this one.
