What would you do if you found out that you just won more than $800 million?
Wait, don’t say it just yet.
You could actually be in this exact scenario sooner than you think since the US Powerball jackpot has increased to a massive €595 million. And based on currency conversion calculators, that equates to at least $879 million CAD.
This Saturday’s draw will be one of the biggest draws in US lottery history and you don’t even need to be in the US to play the game. That’s right, there’s no need to rush across the border to snap up your tickets because you can play online through Jackpot.com.
Yes, there are few small rules when it comes to being Canadian and playing the game. You’ll have to collect your winnings in the State where the ticket was purchased, and Canadians can’t physically enter the US with lottery tickets in their possession.
But that doesn’t stop you from playing online. On Jackpot.com, you can bet on the US Powerball (and 17 other leading global lotteries).
