Did you get up early to beat the rush for Powerball tickets? Why not get one since the jackpot is getting huge, and besides somebody has to win eventually, right?
CBS Los Angeles reports the multi-state lottery game coming in at an estimated $700 million, and it appears that’s the second largest jackpot in Powerball history.
What are your odds of winning? About one in 292 million, and if you were lucky enough to match all 5 numbers and the Powerball number and decided to take the lump sum you’d get about $443.3 Million in cash value.
Last Saturday there was one ticket that was sold at a liquor store in Los Angeles that matched five numbers, but missed the Powerball number, that ticket is worth almost $1.1 million.
You have until 7:00 pm to get your tickets for tonight’s drawing. Good luck!
