Powerball Jackpot is Now Over $500 Million

Cha-Ching baby!

August 17, 2017

Did you play Powerball last night? 

In case you didn't check your numbers, I can tell you that you didn't win the $400 million grand prize. No one won last night's jackpot so now it's grown. 

If you win Saturday's Jackpot you could opt for the cash option and get $324 million. 

I'm setting reminders on my phone and putting a post-it note on my computer and fridge to remind myself to buy a ticket before Saturday. 

If you won the lottery would you quit your job? Honestly, I'd keep my job. I took off a week two weeks ago and started feeling like I was going crazy after three days. And even on days off, I am still writing something for the station's website. I guess maybe with all that money I could find myself stuff to keep me busy, but I love my job and working here. 

Not to be Debbie Downer, but the odds of winning are 1 in 292.2 million.
