Along with Mega Millions, the Powerball Lottery is the other major US multi-state lotto. Power Ball is operated by the Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL), which is a consortium of lottery commissions in 29 US states, the District of Columbia as well as the U.S. Virgin Islands. MUSL is licensed as the monopoly provider of multistate lotteries in these states.
The forerunner to Powerball commenced operations in 1988 and was called Lotto America. In April 1992, the name and the game were officially changed to Power Ball and it has remained the same ever since.
