An Incredible $700,000,000 (Yes Million) On The Line Tonight
Talk about lottery fever, there's $700 million on the line - RIGHT NOW!
The Powerball Lottery is set to award the second largest jackpot in the history of all lottery jackpots, but that's only if a ticket (or multiple tickets) match the five numbers and one magical powerball number exactly right! To do that though you'll have to overcome some great odds to take home that $700 million (or $443 million if you chose the cash option like I did!) The odds are pretty muched stacked against you, but you will have a one in 292,201,338 chance of winning it all!
So how did the Powerball Lottery get to be this large? There hasn't been a winner since June 14th and there have been twenty drawings since with no one matching all five numbers and the powerball number. If there is no winner tonight, the jackpot could possibly surpass or get close to the largest jackpot ever given away, which was $1.6 billion in January of 2016.
The jackpot could grow a little more before the drawing tonight because the more tickets that are sold the higher the jackpot climbs and lottery officials are expecting to sell 170 million tickets for this drawing.
When you beat the odds and win the jackpot, remember to hire an attorney, seek advice from a tax attorney and then get ready to be hit up by anyone and everyone you know for a little handout from your new fortune!
