Through the years, there have been numerous individuals who won the Powerball jackpot, but due to the recent u.s. draw changes, all Powerball winners are now excluded from the Powerball prize distribution due to the new restrictions imposed by the powers that be. One of the reasons behind the ban on Powerball was due to the increase of fraud that took place in connection with the Powerball jackpot; this meant that there were more individuals who were intending to use a proxy in order to win the Powerball. Through the years, the Powerball prize distribution was changed; therefore, Powerball players can no longer join the so called “olarship clubs” that offered Powerball for memberships.
As a result of the Powerball prizes that are now banned by the powers that be in the U.S., there has been an increased demand for different gambling games, which in turn led to the development of such gambling games as the Draw Poker. This game is associated with Powerball and features an estimate jackpot of $150 million. The odds of winning the Powerball are just slightly higher than that of the Draw Poker because the game allows for a much smaller prize than that of Powerball.
