Powerball Lottery and How It Works

Powerball is a lottery game that draws its winners by using two drums. The first drum has white balls in it, while the second drum has the red ball. This unique placement is how Powerball Lottery gets its name.

Every Wednesday and Saturday nights, the game picks its winner at 10:12 PM at Orlando Universal Studios. You can watch the winner announcement on Powerball website, television, newspapers, and online gambling site. There is a special rule, however, in Powerball if you want to win the jackpot. You have to match five white and red balls in any order.

The jackpot itself is the very reason for many people to enter this lottery game. The prize starts at $40 million. When the drawing cannot find the winner, the jackpot will grow at least $10 million. Since it replaced the Lotto*America lottery back in 1992, the prize has grown into an enormous amount. In 2016, it reached the highest amount ever recorded: $1.5 billion.

How to Play Powerball

The game begins with 69 white balls in the first drum and 26 red balls in the second drum. During the drawing, the coordinator will pick five white balls and one red ball, the Powerball.

As for the contestants, the steps are a bit different. For every ticket you buy, you have to select five numbers and one Powerball number. For you to win the jackpot, all these numbers should match with the white ball and Powerball numbers. You can either choose the ball by yourself or let the machine to do it for you.

Do You Need 5 Balls to Win the Prize?

No, if we include the smallest prize. If you picked the correct Powerball, you would win $4. If we deduce the money you spend on the ball, it means you can bring home $2 with the right Powerball.

However, as I said before if you want to win the jackpot, your five white balls and Powerball should match precisely as numbers they draw during the event.

Who Will Be the Next Christiano Ronaldo?

It has been more a decade since we last saw a player, besides Lionel Messi and Christiano Ronaldo, to receive Ballon d’Ors. It is the highest recognition of a player’s skill in football. With Ronaldo at his 33 this year and Messi at his 31, we are looking for the dusk of their era.

During an interview after receiving his second Ballon d’Ors last December, Ronaldo gave the media some hints of young players that might become his successor. Four young players emerged, but will they eventually become the heir?

Kylian Mbappe (Paris Saint-Germain)

With an annual salary of €145m and up to €35 bonuses per year, PSG says enormous talent in Mbappe. He once scored 26 goals while playing at senior club level in just one season. Since then, he has been fighting his way to becoming a world-class player. However, some controversies are surrounding him. Even after collecting 13 goals so far for PSG, many people are still expecting more of him. The upcoming match against Ronaldo should provide plenty of chances for him to prove what his real skills.

Marco Asensio (Real Madrid)

With his skills, Marco Asensio poses extreme challenges to other Ballon d’Or future candidates.  During his first full season with Real Madrid, Asensio has scored eight goals using mainly his left foot. His excellent performance with Spain U-21 during the European U-21 Championship also confirmed his true potentials.

Ousmane Dembele (Barcelona)

With £97m initial fee and his young age, Dembele is more than just any young player. His exceptional balance, ability to beat any player with either foot and explosive pace put him as one of the most promising future Ballon d’Or winners. However, there is one question remaining. Will this young player have the temperament and motivation to win? With so much tense and target to fill, can he prove his real value?

Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City)

While Neymar still becomes the most talented young player Brazil ever has, he will soon join Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in their 30s. That is still four years from now, and even so, Brazil has a pile of young talented players to replace his place. It is Gabriel Jesus. Once known as Selecao’s top scorer, this young star earned seven goals for his team in just ten matches.

With his intention to win, he quickly adapts to the rigorous life of Premier League. During his career with Manchester United, he managed to score eight goals before suffering a severe knee injury. Recent rumors also said that he is also under Pep Guardiola’s radar. He may be still too young to join the World Cup. However, with his young age, excellent performance, and excellent manager he has in Manchester United, we might see him walking off with Ballon d’Or at his hand. Manchester United has a unique tradition where they turn the unknown player into some of the world’s best soccer player. Perhaps this time, this tradition will continue and choose Gabriel Jesus.
