Powerball took over from the original Lotto America and is one of the most popular lotteries in the United States, offering enormous jackpots that regularly run into the hundreds of millions of dollars. The jackpot starts at $20 million and there is no cap, meaning it continues to increase until it is won. The $1.58 billion Powerball jackpot shared by three players in January 2016 is still the biggest jackpot prize ever won in a lottery anywhere in the world.
