With the $425 million Powerball draw just a few hours away, global lottery players are asking themselves where the luckiest place is to buy a Powerball lottery ticket!
According to statistcs provided by the Multi-State Lottery Association, you could have more luck if you buy your ticket in Pennsylvania than in New Jersey, if history is anything to go by.
More jackpot-winning Powerball lottery tickets have been sold in Pennsylvania than in any other state or US territory. Only three jackpot-winning Powerball lottery tickets have been sold in New Jersey which puts the state on a par with Delaware, Georgia, Kansas, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, South Dakota, and Rhode Island.
Pennsylvania came in first with 16 jackpot-winning Powerball lottery sales. Indian was second with 11. Third was Louisiana followed by Florida and Missouri in joint fourth position.
The reality, however, is that you have more chance of being struck by lightening – 1 in 6.250 according to the National Weather Service – than you have of matching the winning lottery numbers for the Powerball jackpot. The odds of that are 1 in 175 million!
