The California Lottery Commission recently voted to adopt the multi-state, mega-jackpot lottery game, POWERBALL. Sales will begin at the Primm Valley Lotto Store on April 8, 2013, and the first drawing will take place on April 10, 2013.
“We are very excited to offer the POWERBALL lottery at Primm Valley, as it is not only one of the most recognized lottery games in the country, but it has both tremendous drawing power and a loyal following,” said Loren Gill, executive vice president and general manager of Primm Valley Casino Resorts. “This provides Primm with another great amenity to offer our existing customers and drive new visitation to our properties.”
The Primm Valley Lotto Store is located just 25 minutes south of Las Vegas, providing the majority of Southern Nevada with the most convenient location to play the POWERBALL lottery. “We look forward to showing both new visitors and visitors who have not been out to see us recently just how much Primm Valley has to offer,” said Gill. “The POWERBALL lottery is a great reason to come visit us, but we have many more reasons to stay and enjoy the experience.”
The $2 POWERBALL game is played much like the popular MEGA Millions game. Players choose five numbers from 1 to 59 and one red POWERBALL number from 1 to 35. Players can either choose their own numbers or opt for a Quick Pick. Draws are held every Wednesday and Saturday at 7:59 p.m. PST. Unlike MEGA Millions and SuperLotto Plus, POWERBALL’s sales end occurs promptly at 7 p.m. PST each draw day. Besides the jackpot, there are eight additional ways to win prizes. The amounts will vary due to the State’s pari-mutuel rules.
A major difference between California’s existing draw games is that the POWERBALL jackpot begins at $40 million and increases by at least $10 million every roll.
The Primm Valley Lotto Store is located at 31900 S. Las Vegas Blvd. in Primm, on the Nevada/California state line. It’s open Monday – Saturday from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m.; Sunday from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. For more information, call 702-679-5402.
