Anybody that knows a thing or two about the lottery in the United States knows that the best bet is to play Powerball, a system that expanded recently to include Powerball MA. Arriving in 2010 to the Bay State, the fact that folks in Massachusetts can now play the Powerball means millions more in payouts per year. It also means millions more in earnings for the lotto system and the many worthy causes it supports, making this truly a win-win scenario for everybody involved.
What's not to like about a game where the jackpot is regularly in excess of $100 million? Or how about a game where the jackpot has been known to climb up to roughly $400 million from time to time? The answer: nothing! Factor in that over the years, billions of Powerball players' dollars have been put towards such important causes as education in underprivileged communities and charity donations, and what you end up with is one of the best games mankind has ever invented.
With the addition of Powerball MA to the already national Powerball network, it has never been easier for the residents of Massachusetts to take full advantage of the game. With approved vendors operating in every single one of the state's thousands of lottery ticket counters, a person in any community in the state is simply a short walk or drive away from getting the chance to play for the incredibly high stakes.
But it's not just worth celebrating that the game has now officially arrived in Massachusetts. What also has people licking their lips when they hear the word 'Powerball' is that the game itself has been revamped in ways that actually benefit the players. What does that mean exactly? Well, for starters, jackpots will be set at a minimum of $40 million now, considerably more than before. In addition, the actual chances for any given player to win have also gone up. What more could you ask for?
And for the truly bold Powerball players, the potential payoff for their daringness to go for a PowerPlay every now and then also has the potential to bring more generous rewards. That's because while the extremely affordable add-on price to enter a PowerPlay has remained the same, the top prize has gone up by an astonishing million dollars. That's the kind of deal even the most frugal gambler wouldn't be able to refuse.
Some people enjoy the sheer thrill of the game and the suspense as they wait to hear the drawings; others just do it as a routine or perhaps enjoy knowing that, win or lose, their money will be going towards something that they think is worthwhile, whether it's for themselves or someone else.
So whether you're the kind of Powerball MA player that goes for season tickets, somebody who plays once in a blue moon, or just a person looking to put some loose change towards a good cause, there's every reason to want to get in on the action. At your nearest lottery location there's all the information you need to learn about the rules for playing Powerball or any one of the other lotto games that are legally available in Massachusetts.
