Powerball Lottery Jackpot Now At $422 Million [POLL]
Could the Powerball jackpot be worth another half a billion dollars or more soon? With no winner in last Saturday’s Powerball lottery, during Wednesday’s drawing (July 27th), the jackpot will be worth $422 million, if not more by then! If you chose the cash option of that jackpot you’d pocket an easy $291 million! I think you could live off of that comfortably!
You’ll have until 9 p.m. Wednesday to pay your two bucks per ticket to pick your favorite numbers to win! In order to win the $422 million, you’ll need to match all five white balls and then the red Powerball number. Oh, your odds of doing that are one in 292,201,338!
Of course this jackpot isn’t anywhere near the record setting $1.6 billion Powerball jackpot that was won by three tickets back in January, but it could get there again if no one matches again on Wednesday. If you do manage to somehow beat the odd and be that one in 292,201,338 you’ll most definitely want to lay low for a while, seek council of an attorney, get some financial advice and get ready to pay the government at least 25%! That’s what Uncle Sam taxes lottery winning and that’s in addition to state taxes, but hey there will most definitely be some left over for you to do as you see fit!
