Created in 1988 by the Multi-state Lottery Association under the name “Lotto America”, this American lottery established in 44 states was renamed as Powerball in 1992.

Another interesting fact about Powerball: the winner can decide to receive his prize gradually on an annual basis instead of a lump sum.
