Powerball Jackpot Now Up To $400 Million
There was no Powerball winner over the weekend. That's good news for all of us and we have a chance this Wednesday to be the big winner!
The Powerball jackpot has now swelled to almost $400 million. The cash option will net you around $275 million dollars. That's crazy cash for just a two dollar bet.
I did some math and figured out what the taxes would be on a prize like that. If you pay back around 35%, that would mean you would have to write a check to the IRS for about $96 million dollars.
The next drawing is this Wednesday, January 29th. I plan to play my favorite set of numbers: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and the Powerball 6. People think I'm crazy, but that sequence is going to come in one of these times!
If you plan to play, good luck.
You'll need it, the odds of winning the lottery are 1 in 292 million.
