If you were ever going to buy a lottery ticket, this might just be the day to do it.
The Powerball drawing tomorrow night is going to have a jackpot of around $700 MILLION – possibly even more. And that’s the biggest lottery jackpot in HISTORY. The previous record was $656 million in 2012.
If you win and take the lump sum, you’ll get about $428.4 million. Assuming about half of that goes to taxes, you’re winding up with $214 million. Not too bad.
Your odds of winning the jackpot are one in 292.2 million.
Powerball tickets are available in 44 states – everywhere but Alaska, Hawaii, Nevada, Utah, Alabama, and Mississippi. They cost $2, and the drawing is at 10:59 p.m. Eastern tomorrow.
