PowerBall Jackpot Raises To Over $400 Million
Thousands of people are flocking to the convenience store to buy a Power Ball ticket today. That is probably because the jackpot has reached over $400 Million!
The lottery has been around for as long as I can remember but I rarely ever buy a ticket. As a matter of fact I don't think I know anyone who has bought a lottery ticket, other than a scratch off, on a regular basis.
But that might change today. The Power Ball jackpot is up to $485 Million! That is the 3rd highest a Power Ball has ever gotten and the 5th largest in lotto history. That is a lot of money. So much so that it is actually getting people out to buy tickets.
The chances of winning are actually really slim, like 1 in 175 million. It doesn't matter, though. The thought of winning that much money is getting people excited. They are even starting pools with family, friend and co-workers.
What would you do it you won that much money?
