Powerball is a game that has been around since the mid 1980’s. Since then it has gained more popularity and here in Oklahoma. The reason why this is so popular is because it allows you to invest real money into a lottery system. There is no risk involved in playing Powerball and you do not need a bank account or even an income to play. If you have access to some sort of phone line you can play right from your home. The other reason why it is so popular is because of all the winners.
Here in Oklahoma every lottery winner gets a free ticket and because of the popularity of this game the prize amounts are rather large. The number of wins a person has had can determine if they will be given more tickets or not. The Powerball prize amount depends on many factors such as the number of wins, the time played, the minimum win requirement, the minimum amount of daily jackpots, as well as the ticket sales. The chances of winning Powerball is based on how lucky you are. Now that we got that out of the way we can look at how you get those prizes.
First you have to buy a Powerball ticket in Oklahoma. Now these tickets can either be bought in a store, online through an auction website, or from a broker. You need to remember that the minimum ticket price in Oklahoma is twenty-five dollars. The minimum ticket sales requirement in Oklahoma is a minimum of sixty days of playing for a single account.
When you buy your ticket you will be given the option of choosing the number and/or brand of ticket that you wish to play with. You will also choose a registration number from a list that will be provided to you. When the drawing is completed and your winner is announced, the money will be transferred to your account in plain view.
Now, for the drawings that occur every Wednesday night. There are two different ways that the powerball jackpots increase. They either stay the same or increase. The weekly powerball winner earns one of four possible top prize amounts of $1 million, or else none at all.
The weekly drawing of the top prize for the Powerball is called “lottery bonus” and will happen once per week. On the second Tuesday of the month, the Powerball winners will receive their prizes. If someone does not purchase a powerball ticket on the first Tuesday of the month, they do not automatically receive the grand prize on the second Tuesday. It is important to understand this if you wish to participate in drawings and win the Powerball jackpot.
You can also play Powerball online. You will need a computer with a broadband Internet connection and a credit or debit card to buy a powerball drawing.
