Three winning tickets will split the record $1.5 Billion Powerball jackpot, but none of the tickets were sold in Michigan. That doesn't mean that a few people in Michigan didn't wake up very happy Thursday morning.
Powerball Mania has hit much of the US, even more locally here in Mid-Michigan since Don Lawson of Lapeer won $337 million back in August. Of the 40 states that participate in the Powerball game no one matched all the numbers for Saturday’s drawing, so the jackpot has jumped up to a whopping $425 million! So what are the odds that you will win?
If I win the Powerball jackpot tomorrow night, I plan to continue working. Working on a suntan, working on traveling to as many exotic places as possible. It's a tough job, but somebody's gotta do it. The February 1st Powerball drawing will feature a jackpot of $170 million.
