Powerball Hits $200 Million
Playing the Powerball doesn’t have the best odds. While the tickets are cheap, the odds of choosing the six correct numbers are about the same as our chance of being struck by lightning.
However, the idea of becoming a multi-millionaire overnight is enough to attract millions of players.
Unsurprisingly, the larger the jackpot the more people start playing and of course this causes the jackpot to grow even faster. Now the Powerball has hit the $200 million mark and people are sure to start buying tickets in droves.
Last Saturday no one won the jackpot meaning it has once again rolled over. In fact, the Powerball hasn’t been won since December 29th and the month before that the Powerball’s biggest ever prize of $587,000,000 was won.
While many will agree that it is not worth spending $2 on a ticket for a small chance to win $15, it might just be worth the risk when the prize is over a million times the cost of the ticket.
So if you’re feeling lucky, hurry and buy your ticket today, you could soon be the world’s next multimillionaire.
