Celebrating 25 years of Powerball and big prizes

8:06 AM


Powerball jackpots. Powerball numbers. Powerball winners. Folks in our state started playing and winning prizes in May 2006. It’s called “America’s Game.” And today we celebrate a major milestone: 25 years of Powerball.

In that quarter century there have been 357 “perfect tickets” to win shares of more than $19 billion in total jackpot prizes. North Carolina has had four jackpot winners, ranging from $74.5 million to $188 million.

Including winning the jackpot, there are nine ways to win a Powerball prize. In our state, lucky tickets have won $10,000 or more 1,716 times. Of those tickets, 211 won $100,000 or more – and 90 times the prize was $1 million to $2 million!

Thanks to all that fun, Powerball play has raised an estimated $761 million for education in North Carolina alone. That’s a nice win, too.

Big Winners

Almost everyone likes a chance to win. It’s no surprise cash is the most popular prize. But who doesn’t like a free T-shirt? We thought you might like that. So to celebrate Powerball’s 25th birthday, we’re having a special one-day promotion on social media to give away 25 Powerball T-shirts. Promotion Rules.

Here’s how it works. Just hop over to
Facebook or Twitter
and check out the pinned post at the top of our page. We’re asking – if you won a nice prize playing Powerball – what “Powerball Wishes” would you make come true? Over the years players have told us a range of ideas from sharing with family to donating to good causes – and, of course, plenty of examples of fun things they always planned to do if they won.

Now it’s your turn to share your Powerball Wishes. Join us on social media to celebrate 25 years of Powerball. You might win a T-shirt. And, if you play Powerball tonight for a chance to win the $80 million jackpot, you could win even more.

I have a scratch -off question? If a vendor runs out of scratch-offs and reorder a new batch are there still big prizes in those batches or were the larger prizes all distributed when the game first came out?Lucke-Zone RepliedHi 2time. We have good news. The winning tickets are distributed throughout the life of the game. So when a retailer orders a news pack, it means there is a chance of a winning ticket being in the pack. Hope that helps! You can always learn more about instant games here: It gives you game-by-game info.

Once again congratulations to all the winners. To the rest of us players, let's play responsibly and hope our turn is around the corner. I love the NC lottery even though they are bein stingy on bringing out the quadruples (4 years and counting) but I do have a major. I don't think it's right to limit the number of tickets one can scan on a daily bas is (75) since there's no limit to the amount of amount we spend. Honestly, I play a lot and I'm pretty I'm not the only one. I do believe 75 entries is a relatively small number. I would suggest at least 200 entries a day. Thank you for your consideration and I hope to hear back from you soon. Have a wonderful rest of the year

On 4/21/2017 11:38, Player said

I would finally enjoy life with little to no worries ??

I have a facebook account. I clicked on facebook in the above paragraph and it brought me to facebook where I logged in, showing the lottery home page. I am not sure what a pinned post is, but I clicked on different icons, and did not see where I could sign up to win a t-shirtLucke-Zone RepliedSorry you missed that opportunity. You needed to post a comment on the lottery's Facebook post about the 25th anniversary of the Powerball game. We'll do more promotions in the future. Next time, if you have trouble, just call Customer Service at 877 962-7529 and they will help you out.

I wrote a letter to Powerball headquarters with an idea to substantially increase sales & whip up the frenzy. Wish they'd take this seriously: when the jackpot reaches $500 million, SPLIT the jackpot into TWO jackpots of $250 million each. Everybody now has TWO chances in TWO DRAWINGS the same night to win with their one ticket. No winner, each jackpot increases at the same rate. One winner, it's back to the single jackpot though it continues at the over $250 million level and keeps going up either till someone wins or THAT jackpot splits and off you go again. Try it for at least one split. See what the actuaries say about potential for increased revenues versus doubling chances for lesser prizes. I think players would swarm for those odds of hitting the big one. What do you think?

On 4/20/2017 10:44, Player said

I would praise God. Because without him it would not have been possible to win

On 4/20/2017 10:33, Player said

If I won I'd get a truck to pull our camper. It's been sitting in our drive for almost three years now. And before that we have stories of our escapades on the side of the road. Our son said the best trip ever was when a wrecker pulled our truck and campers out 15 feet to get us out of traffic.

On 4/20/2017 07:20, 87superglide said

LZ likes to boast about having 700,000+ members but you exclude us from your promotions? Your twitter account has 8,211 followers, facebook has 38,653 followers but you ignore 700k LZ members? This blog is text based, just like twitter and facebook, so adding it to the tool box to extract entries from bloggers is a no-brainer. NCEL owns this website but won't put forth the effort to include bloggers however you will spend time and resources to mine two other websites you do not own. What is NCEL's leadership thinking? And if your IT staff can't handle something as simple as adding the blog site you own, then you need a new IT director.

Not everyone has the same chance to win if you cannot find scratch off tickets to buy small county retailer will not put games out or you don't send them because of your 4 or more new games every month odds do change as more tickets are sold do they not please respondLucke-Zone RepliedLottery retailer decide how many games they carry and place order to get new tickets as needed. The lottery checks in with retailers to see what tickets they need. And new tickets are sent as soon as a retailer orders them. And yes, you are correct. As soon as folks start playing an instant game, the odds of winning prizes in that game will change too.

I have been playing for a while now, but never win anything big. Most of the time I break even, it will be nice to win a jackpot for once. Good luck to all the players.

LuckEZone replied-if you are not having fun stop and there are more important things in life - playing .Its not about fun like all the others such as myself feel it's about winning something worthwhile ,how is fun losing all your money ,one of the important things in life is integrity and the lotto does not have this instead it is false info to cause losses

So why not give us bloggers a shot at the various small prizes you have offered on the OTHER social media outlets? Lucke-Zone RepliedBlogs are a type of social media for sure. But we have a tool that we use to extract all the posts from Facebook and Twitter for the random drawing that is not capable of doing the same thing for our blog posts.
