The PowerBall lottery comes from the USA and offers players one of the largest jackpots in the world. This always starts with $ 40 million (instead of around € 1 million, as with LOTTO 6aus49) and can increase indefinitely without a fixed upper limit. The tip is based on 5 out of 69 numbers and an additional number from 1 to 26. This means that there are a total of more betting options than with the German LOTTO 6aus49.
The US lottery with its unlimited jackpots also regularly makes headlines, especially if they go up to billions again. Twice a week you now have the chance to go on the exciting jackpot hunt even from Europe. The draws always take place on Thursdays and Sundays in the morning. The Powerball acceptance deadline is midnight at the beginning of the day. From 5 a.m. the new PowerBall numbers will be available.

Playing the US Lotto from outside the United States
Powerball is played in 44 US states, the capital Washington DC, Puerto Rico, and the American Virgin Islands. Internationally, you can take part in the lottery via the Internet. You will find trusted providers that offer Powerball Lottery tickets to play with.
The form of participation varies: at theLotterer.com, for example, according to its own information, the tickets in the USA are bought and filled out by one of the local branch offices. So you actually take part in the lottery. Smaller winnings are then transferred to the player’s account at theLotterer.com. For larger prizes over $ 10,000, the website invites the tipsters to the USA to claim the prize. All lottery winnings in America are subject to both state and national taxes.
At Tipp24, on the other hand, the principle is a little different: You don’t take part directly in the drawing, but bet on the outcome. In this case, the organizer is Tipp24, not the Powerball lottery. Therefore, the player has to put their utmost trust that the website will actually pay him the winnings. According to its own information, Tipp24 has secured itself in order to be able to pay larger sums. The provider Lottoland.com also works according to this principle.
