Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) - The American Powerball lottery's jackpot prize of US$137 million (equivalent to ₱6.8 billion) is currently the highest lottery prize in the world. In January this year, lottery fans across the globe held their breath when it seemed the Powerball jackpot was on track to break its all-time record of US$1.586 million, set back in January 2016. In the end, the jackpot was won at US$730 million, by a single ticket purchased in Maryland.

To participate in the upcoming Powerball draw on Wednesday, July 14, play the game by purchasing official Powerball tickets online at theLotter.com. There is no need for you to travel to the United States to stand a chance of winning the US$137 million Powerball jackpot.

Yes, there are winners from the Philippines!

"While there has yet to be a jackpot winner from the Philippines, Filipinos have won amazing prizes playing online at theLotter," theLotter's spokesman Adrian Cooremans said.

B.J.L., an engineer from Manila who requested anonymity, loves playing local lottery games. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, he was unable to buy his favorite lottery tickets, which could only be purchased in person. Instead, he purchased US Powerball tickets online at theLotter and ended up winning a third-division $50,000 Powerball prize in the draw last March 10.

Here's how you could win a $137 million jackpot from the Philippines:

1. Sign up at theLotter.com.

2. Select the Powerball lottery.

3. Choose five numbers (from 1-69) on the playing form.

4. Choose one 'Powerball' number (from 1-26) in the orange field on the form.

5. Confirm your ticket purchase.

How theLotter works

theLotter.com is a lottery ticket messenger service. It uses local agents in the United States to buy official lottery tickets on behalf of its customers from all over the world. A small surcharge is added to ticket prices to cover the cost of this service. The ticket is scanned and uploaded to a customer's account before the draw. With this scanned version of the ticket and email confirmation, customers can rest assured that they have full ownership of their tickets.

theLotter provides a dedicated support team, available 24/7, to help customers with any concerns.
