Powerball jackpot jumps to $330M
Nobody has hit the Powerball lottery since Christmas Night pushing tonight's drawing to the $330 million mark. Should you opt to take the cash option, you will still walk away with over $189 million! These numbers make tonight's drawing the 10th largest in history.
Anyone who knows me knows I HATE math! But for those who do understand and appreciate it, here's a calculation of your chances of winning money from tonight's drawing. http://www.powerball.com/powerball/pb_prizes.asp
Other games frequently offer better odds if you're looking for anything less than the jackpot. With a single ticket having just 1 chance in 175 million, the jackpot could rise again. Powerball has topped the $400 million mark three times, all since November 2012.
