NEUBAUER SAYS SALES PICK UP SO MUCH, THE JACKPOT CAN CHANGE SEVERAL TIMES BEFORE THE DRAWING.

POWER2 OC….JACKPOT :16

THE MEGA MILLIONS JACKPOT WAS RECENTLY WON AFTER IT WENT ABOVE 500 MILLION, ENDING THE CHANCES OF SEEING IT KEEP PACE WITH POWERBALL.

POWER3 OC….HERE IN IOWA :25

THE PREDECESSOR TO POWERBALL, LOTTO AMERICA, HAS A JACKPOT OF 29 MILLION DOLLARS.

LOTTO AMERICA TICKETS COST ONE DOLLAR COMPARED TO TWO DOLLARS FOR THE OTHER TWO GAMES, AND THAT MEANS SMALLER OVERALL JACKPOTS.

POWER4 OC….SMALLER :13

NEUBAUER SAYS IF YOU WANT TO GET INTO THE BIG POWERBALL DRAWING, DON’T MISS THE CUTOFF TIME.

POWER5 OC….NIGHT’S DRAWING :15

NEUBAUER SAYS THREE TICKETS IN IOWA CAME CLOSE TO TAKING THE POWERBALL JACKPOT IN MONDAY NIGHT’S DRAWING — MISSING BY ONE NUMBER — GIVING THEM A PRIZE OF 50-THOUSAND DOLLARS.

SHE SAYS THAT’S A GOOD REASON TO CHECK EVERY TICKET FOR A PRIZE, EVEN IF YOU DON’T WIN THE JACKPOT.
