There may be some big money prize available in Europe, but Australian Powerball Players can aim their sights a little higher because the present jackpot stands at AUD$ 50 million (USD$ 46.3 million). That a lot of wonga so if some lucky ticket-holder manages to match the six main numbers and the Powerball on Thursday someone in the land down under will have very reason to feel on top of the world.
Although it is not quite as large as its namesake from the other side of the world, the US Powerball jackpot has also grown very enticing over the last few weeks. Nobody has scooped the top prize since Wednesday, July 9, 2014. There has been nine rollovers since then so US Powerball players have a USD$ 40 million pot to play for on Wednesday night.
Not to be outdone by its competitors, the US Mega Millions game offers the biggest prize available at the present time. There has not been a Mega Millions jackpot win since Friday, June 27, when one lucky ticket-holder matched the five main numbers and the Mega Ball and scooped the USD$ 33 million prize. That's a decent prize, but it's mere pocket-change compared to Tuesday mammoth jackpot of USD$ 128 million.
