The Powerball jackpot has continued to roll since the historic Jan. 13, $1.58 billion jackpot that resulted in three winning tickets.

Powerball fever gripped the nation and hasn’t let up, as more people than ever before hope to become the next millionaire.

Powerball is one of the country’s most popular lottery jackpot games and it is known for having large jackpot prizes. Mega Millions is the second most popular game; however, the jackpot isn’t as large as it is for Powerball. The attraction of large Powerball jackpots makes it extremely popular, and now that new game changes promises even greater jackpots, Powerball continues its dominance in lottery games. When playing Powerball, there are nine ways to win. This means that even if you don’t win the jackpot, you can still become a millionaire. The incredible win on Jan. 13 set a new precedent for the game and caused an excitement for the Powerball lottery game unlike any other previously seen.

There were three winning tickets for the Jan. 13, Powerball jackpot. To date, only one couple has come forward to claim their prize. The winning billion-dollar jackpot tickets sold in California and Florida remain unclaimed. The winners who have come forward are John and Lisa Robinson of Munford, Tennessee. They have publicly appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres show and shared a bit about how they purchased the ticket and what their reaction was when they found out they were winners. You can watch the video with John and Lisa Robinson on the Ellen DeGeneres show below.

What would you do if you won the Powerball jackpot? Have you thought about whether you would prefer a lump sum, cash payment, or an annuity? The estimated cash value of tonight’s Powerball jackpot is $87,800,000. While many people prefer to take the lump sum payment in cash, many financial authorities do not believe that’s the wisest decision. There are many things that can happen to a new millionaire to cause financial ruin. While many people hope they can keep their lives the same as it always was, that isn’t always possible. Once someone who has never handled a large amount of money before becomes a Powerball winner, they will need to learn a great deal about finances, financial responsibility, and how to budge and invest their winnings. They will also need to understand how to pay their taxes on the winnings and may need to set up a trust. Quite frankly, it’s easy to blow a lump sum cash payment. Those new to wealth may just go out and buy a lot of new things, make poor business decisions, and before long, find themselves broke. Those who take a yearly annuity payment might make serious financial mistakes, but will still have money coming in the future. Taking an annuity is a safer choice and one that those new to wealth should make.

The Powerball drawing takes place at 11:00 pm. ET. Stay tuned for the winning numbers and results. Good luck!
