UPDATE: $758 MILLION Powerball Jackpot Prize WON!

UPDATE: The drawing for Wednesday, August 23, 2017 was won! The final jackpot of $758,700,000 was won by one lucky ticket in Massachusetts. The winning numbers were 6-7-16-23-26 and PB 4. The next drawing’s jackpot is back to $40 million.

Powerball jackpots often get high, but over half a billion dollars in prize money is still uncommon.  The Powerball jackpot prize is currently estimated at $700 Million for the next drawing on Wednesday, August 23, 2017. This is the second-largest lotto prize in Powerball history. The lump-sum cash payout value of Wednesday’s Powerball jackpot is estimated to be $411.7 million. The last Powerball jackpot to be won was on June 10th, when $447.8 million were claimed by a lottery winner in California.

The Latest Winning Powerball Numbers

No one matched the six numbers drawn Saturday night, but the latest Powerball winning numbers were 17, 19, 39, 43, 68, with a Powerball number of 13. If no one wins again, the jackpot will climb even more rapidly. It may even beat the $1.6 billion Powerball jackpot from January 2016 that is the current Powerball (and all lottery) record.

Improve Your Odds at Winning Powerball

Powerball is not an easy game to win thanks to the odds of over one in 292 million, but it’s actually impossible if you don’t buy a ticket! With the stakes this high, it’s worth giving it a shot. A jackpot over half a billion is worth spending a couple of bucks at least, but skip the Quick Picks. To play the game smarter, use our Smart Luck strategy and wheeling to improve your odds of winning Powerball prizes (that’s right – you can win more than one prize!).

EuroMillions Game Changes

In a rush to produce larger jackpots and more ways to win, EuroMillions is mixing things up. As of the drawing on Tuesday, September 27, 2016, EuroMillions now has new, updated rules, including a change to the number format.

An extra Lucky Star number has been added, making the game a 5/50 + 2/12. This worsens the jackpot odds of winning EuroMillions, which is now one in 139,838,160 (the previous odds were one in 116,531,800).

Consumers in the UK now have to pay £2.50 (€2.88/$3.24) for one line, up from the previous cost of £2. Other countries prices may vary, but the majority are the new price.

Note about Smart Luck history file

Our software will still work the same for this game, but you will need to download the new history file for the lucky stars. Every time a game changes, we have to rename the history file to match the new number format. If you update with favorites in Lottery Updater, you’ll need to go into change your favorites to select the new file – eur0212.slh. The old file, eur0211.slh will no longer be updated. The new file still includes the old history for you to use until there are enough drawings with 12 numbers to work with. Then, we will lock the range of the game to start by default at the date of the current format beginning. You can change the range at any time yourself to include or exclude the past drawings. The main 5 numbers can still be found in the Euro Millions file, eur0550.slh which remains unchanged.

The Lottery – How to turn a game of luck into a game of skill!

Dreaming of winning a lotto?

Can you see yourself sitting on a tropical beach, or driving your new sports car, and feeling stress-free because your mortgage and credit card bills are payed off? For most people, this might only possible if you win the lottery. That’s why millions dream of winning a lotto jackpot. But, with Smart Luck, that dream can be a reality!

Some lotto games are better than others

If you choose the right game to play, you can improve your odds of winning automatically by a huge amount. Don’t jump in the Powerball mosh pit with odds of 1 in 292,201,338 (yes, that’s almost as difficult as picking ONE specific person out of all of the people living in the United States). Instead, start with a pick-5 game like Cash 5 or Fantasy 5. You won’t win millions, but you are much more likely to get a nice chunk of cash which could help you pay off bills and still leave you with a nice lotto fund to work on the high jackpot games later.

But, what lottery numbers should you play?

Well, there are many ways you can choose your numbers that are much better than using birthdays or ages or Quick Picks. “Yeah, right, lottery numbers are random,” you are probably thinking to yourself right now. Yes, they are! However, even numbers that are drawn randomly form patterns that are somewhat predictable. Studying these lotto number trends can give you a huge advantage in winning more prizes! Lotto software like Advantage Gold makes it easy to recognize these patterns so you can pick hot lotto numbers.

Now, what if you could GUARANTEE you’d win a 2nd prize at lotto, for example?

Smart Luck Balanced Wheels can give you such a guarantee. If you take a larger group of numbers you selected (preferably by tracking lotto patterns!), and overlap them into the right combinations on your tickets, you WILL win a minimum prize if the winning numbers are in the group that you chose to wheel. It’s that easy! We even offer wheels that have won jackpots for others, for FREE at smartluck.com.
