Get your Powerball tickets now because the jackpot has reached a record breaking amount! Going from $450 million at the beginning of the week to $800 million on Jan. 7, whoever chose the right numbers is in for a serious shopping spree — get your money hungry details below!
Now is SO not the time to be having a bad luck spree! With ticket holders having just a 1 in 300 million chance of winning, if a recipient is chosen, they will be one lucky ducky. The record breaking amount will be given out only if all five white balls and one red Powerball match up.
The last Powerball winner was chosen back in November, which means the prize money has grown to an astronomical level. The surplus of ticket sales also makes it more likely that a winner will be found, as added tickets mean more combinations of numbers are covered. So, time to remember your high school jersey number or bank on the birth date of your kids, because if you choose the right digits, you’re pretty much set for life.
In 2013 an 84-year-old man won $590.5 million, which at the time was the largest grand prize in lotto history! Those who hear their numbers called have a couple of choices of what to do with their earnings. They can either take annual payments over a 30 year span or take a giant lump sum all at once!
