Did U Power Ball yet?…

 

If I win a Billion Dollars….

If you haven’t heard the news yet… word around town is, it only takes 1 ticket and 6 numbers to potentially make you a BILLIONAIRE!

The Powerball lottery jackpot jumped to $700 million this morning, when there were no winners during last nights drawing.

Today, lottery officials said ticket sales will continue to skyrocket leading up to Saturday night’s drawing…

Everybody and their brother is talking about the Powerball jackpot, because Powerball has never created a Billionaire. But, for the first time in history, the first Power winner of 2016 could make a mark on history!

I hate to be the party pooper, but lottery officials say the chances of winning the big jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million, but here is some hope… We have this saying in Spanish that says, “La suerte es loca, y a qualquiera le toca.”

Wondering what this means… well luck is crazy, and it can strike anyone! But if you are wondering how this jackpot will make it into your wallet? It translates like this… an estimated $700 million jackpot is estimated based on annual 30-year payments, but most winners opt for those lump-sum payouts, which turn out to be smaller amounts. Don’t forget then you have to factor in federal taxes, which give about HALF of the winnings to Uncle Sam!

The winning numbers on Wednesday’s drawing were… 2, 11, 47, 62 and 63, and a 17 Powerball; because nobody won on Wednesday, the pot rolled over and grew BIGGER! If you are wondering what happens on Saturday if no one wins? Well, the big guns at Powerball say there is NO limit on how many times the jackpot can roll over!

Say What?!?!

Yup, it keeps growing until luck strikes!

L’s Top 5 Lottery Purchases…

Is it such a Millennial cliche for me to say, that if I were to win, I would pay off my Student Loans?!?! While on that note, I would also start my own business, a coffee shop! It’s always been a dream, what can I say… I would buy my first home and refurbish Libraries at low income schools across the country! My 5th and final purchase, would be… buying into a professional sports team! Crazy right? I am a HUGE football fan and getting a little piece of the pie would be such an honor and such an exciting way to spend my weekends with my Dad.

Plus, maybe it will help me land a cute athletic boyfriend!
