US Powerball

Overview

This is the colossus of the lottery world, as with most things out of the US it is BIG! It boasts by far the largest jackpots and has the potential to make not just millionaires but billionaires!

Powerball is an American lottery game offered by 44 states. It is coordinated by the Multi-State Lottery Association, a non-profit organization formed by an agreement with US lotteries.

The Powerball replaced its predecessor “Lotto America” which ran from 1988. It was the first game to use a two-drum system. The first has white balls which are for the main draw. The second drum has red balls which are for the Powerball. This system supposedly allows for better manipulation. It can simultaneously allow for high odds (main draw) and low odds (A prize is won for just the Powerball). This concept has now been adopted by other familiar lotteries such as MegaMillions, Eurojackpot, Euromillions, Oz Powerball, and Thunderball.

In case you were wondering the Powerball came before the MegaMillions. It was introduced ten years later in 2 002.

The first draw was held on 22 nd April 1992 .

The Powerball also includes an add-on feature called The Powerplay (please see below).

Countries that participate :US, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands.

The Biggest of the biggest Jackpots:

Powerball has an opening jackpot of $40,000,000, which alone is more than plenty of lotteries peak at. To date, the largest jackpot that it has produced is $1.586 billion. The largest in history!


When do the Powerball draws take place?

The Powerball draw takes place at approximately 04:00 GMT every Thursday and Sunday.

How do I check my US Powerball ticket?

Select Check Results (located at the top on a pc and in the drop-down menu on a mobile device), then scroll down to Powerball. Here you will see the most recent draw result. If you wish to see historic results then select All results.


What do I do if I win?

If your account has been verified simply proceed to your account and withdraw your winnings. You can do this by creating a Withdrawal request. To do this go to My Account, Withdraw Funds, Enter the amount that you would like to withdraw, with any additional information in the description box (if you would like). Then press send. There is no fee for a withdrawal of funds.

If you have not already nominated a valid bank account to receive winnings, you will need to do so. This can be done by going to My Account, Bank details, edit, enter your details, and select save.


How are the prizes paid?

All winnings are paid directly into the player's One Pound Lotto account.

In order to withdraw prizes over £4,000, Fatt Mountain Ltd may require that you pass additional identity checks to confirm that you are who you say you are and that you meet the One Pound Lotto minimum age requirement of 18 years old. Additional checks are at Fatt Mountain Ltd's discretion. Failure to comply may result in winnings not being paid or delayed.

All winnings across all games will have to be claimed within 60 days

We do not believe in the practice of “annuity” (the payment of large prizes over a fixed period of roughly 30years) as many other sites do. All of our prizes will be paid in full! to the winners nominated account, within 60 days of the winners being verified as a genuine winner by One Pound Lotto. However, some of the official lotteries do practice annuity on their advertised jackpots. Hence we advertise our jackpots based on theirs. Currently, the only lottery that we advertise that does this is the US Powerball and MegaMillions.

US Powerball Annuity

Graduated annuity paid in 30 yearly installments. Each annuity payment is 5% higher than in the previous year to adjust for inflation.

The advertised estimated jackpot represents the total payments that would be paid to jackpot winner(s) should they accept the annuity option. This estimate is based on the funds accumulated in the jackpot pool rolled over from prior drawings, expected sales for the next drawing, and market interest rates for the securities that would be used to fund the annuity.

Because the quoted jackpot amount is an annuity of 30 graduated annual payments, its cash value relative to the annuity fluctuates. The actual ratio depends on projected interest rates and other factors. MUSL (Multi-State Lottery Association) starts with the cash value, built from a percentage of sales, and then calculates the advertised jackpot amount from that value, based on the average costs of the three best securities bids.

Powerball and Taxation

The local tax regulations in Powerball participating states will apply and may vary from state to state.

Tax is imposed on the winner by the federal and (some) state governments of The United States of America.

It is the responsibility of the player to pay the tax and not www.onepoundlotto.com

Lottery winnings in the US are subject to a Federal tax of 24%. This will be withheld upon winning by the IRS. This is called Federal Withholding.

Even if you live outside of the US expect to pay 24%. The full explanation is that as we at www.onepoundlotto.com are purchasing the physical ticket for you in the US. As such the purchase of the ticket would be treated as if it was purchased in the US and subject to federal tax law.

You may have also read about state tax laws on the US Powerball. There are more details of this in our Powerball FAQ's. Some states do indeed have additional state taxes and also additional income taxes which would class your winnings as earning and subsequently add an additional 13% tax on top of the 24% to put you on a higher earner rate of tax (37%).

There is good news however. As a onepoundlotto.com customer, we purchase all of our tickets in the state of Delaware. Delaware is one state that has a 0% state tax on all lottery winnings. This means that regardless of your domicile you will not pay state tax! Even if you live in a US state (like NY) that has a high state tax.

As we also claim the ticket anonymously via a lawyer and/or blind trust there is no additional high earner tax of 13%.

If you are playing from the UK there is more good news!

As the UK does not pay tax on gambling revenue, as it is not seen as a source of income, it is possible to claim it back. This is well worth doing especially when the tax bill could be running into hundreds of millions of pounds. Although we at www.onepoundlotto.com can not guarantee or make any promise to you that you would be able to claw back this money from the IRS. We can say this "it has been done before and we have worked with operators who have successfully done this". We will gladly advise you but can not complete this task for you.

If you are living in the US unfortunately you would pay the 24% Federal Withholding.

If you live outside the UK or US we would advise you to refer to your relevant countries tax authority and in the event of a win possibly a lawyer. As there is every possibility you could claim back the Federal Withholding from the IRS.
