MANILA, Philippines — Here’s a phone call you would love to receive: “Hello, you won the lottery!” That would be truly exciting! But imagine if the call informed you that you won the American Powerball jackpot?

Powerball is the most popular lottery game in the world, a title it has held ever since it awarded a record-breaking $1.586 billion jackpot in January 2016.

The Powerball fever swept the world as people everywhere, including some who had previously never played the lottery, rushed to purchase their tickets.

Luckily, you, too, can play Powerball no matter where you are by purchasing your Powerball tickets online at theLotter.com.

It has been over two months since the US Powerball jackpot was last won but there’s a chance it will be won in the upcoming draw, this Wednesday night. It offers a staggering jackpot of $169 million—and you could win it from the Philippines!

theLotter has been calling lucky players since 2002.

Adrian Cooremans, theLotter’s spokesman explains, “theLotter gives players the opportunity to participate in the world’s biggest and most exciting lotteries. And the best part? Our customers don’t just play lotteries—they also win them! Scores of theLotter's players have won Powerball prizes over the years and a number of our players have become Powerball millionaires after they matched the five main numbers in a lucky draw.”

Meet theLotter’s biggest Powerball winners:

  • G. from Australia has been playing with theLotter since he discovered our ‘convenient and easy to use" ticket purchasing service in 2003. He has scored more than 450 wins over the years, but all pale in comparison to the prize he won on October 19, 2016. Coming just one number away from winning the Powerball jackpot, G. was compensated with a very nice $1 million second division prize.
  • P from Quebec started playing lotteries online through theLotter when the US Powerball jackpot hit $1 billion. Luckily for P, he kept playing Powerball after the billion-dollar jackpot fell and won the $1 million second prize on February 27, 2016!
  • Grandfather H. from El Salvador is another winner in the 2nd prize division of the US Powerball. On the eve of the record $1.6 billion Powerball, playing for his first-time lottery on the site, he won $1 million. His first thought was that now he finally had enough money to go and visit his grandchildren and great-grandchildren who live in the United States, of all places!
  • B.U. from London in the United Kingdom won the 2nd division Powerball prize in 2012 and he collected his $1 million prize in the United States. B.U. was fascinated by the American Powerball lottery and played only a few times before his dreams became a reality. He became a millionaire overnight!
