Jackpot is up too $320 Million annuity and $213.3 million Cash

Guess my $1,000 gamble the other day helped push it higher. It should be even higher than that by Wednesday night.

    so, you'll be like the rest of us here, praying for the jackpot?

    NO.....I don't think anyone should be praying for jackpot unless they are about to lose their home or have catastrophic medical expenses, etc.  I think God had better things to do than help someone buy an expensive car and other luxury items. I have a good job so I view this all as entertainment. I will save my prayers for something more serious.

      If I win the $305M, I can't help but think about asking out my celebrity crush. You feel me?

      Can you blame me?

            You have a 50% chance of winning the lottery. You either win or you lose.

            Thats one way of looking at it.....

              I bought a $6 Powerball ticket for last night drawing, and I won $4 for a total loss of $2. My coworkers did a powerball pool for last night drawing. They bought like 50 tickets for a zero return. I was not included in the pool. They also collected the money for Wednesday drawing , and they did not ask me to participate. Good luck to them.

              I wonder if your co-workers are trying to tell you something?

              About playing the lottery --  You will lose more than you win. Until you hit a jackpot.  Then everything changes!

                You should drop another 4$ and get the free ticket.

                I noticed that some lottery players were spending $10 for a 5 lines ticket to get a free single line on powerball in new York. They could have spent $20 for a 10 lines ticket and gotten a free single ticket with 2 lines on it. You still have the same chances of winning though.

                $20 Powerball ticket with 10 lines Versus two $10 Powerball tickets with 5 lines each?

                I prefer the $20 Powerball ticket with 10 lines for convenience, if I'm spending $20 on Powerball.
