Do you have your ticket? The Jan. 13 Powerball jackpot is a staggering $1.5 billion dollars and someone may walk away with the biggest lotto prize in history. The drawing takes place at 10:59 pm EST and HollywoodLife.com wants you to every second! Click to watch.
The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million — that means there’s still a chance that one lucky ticket holder is going to take home 1.5 billion dollars. With so much money on the line, this is one lotto drawing that no one wants to miss!
All someone needs is a dollar and a dream — and plenty of luck — to win the unbelievably huge jackpot. $1.5 billion dollars is up for grabs on Jan. 13, and anyone can win! The numbers will be drawn at 10:59 p.m EST. If you’re not glued to a television screen (find a channel broadcasting the drawing RIGHT HERE) then you can watch the Powerball drawing online.
This record-breaking jackpot is all thanks to no one winning the $900 million purse on Jan. 9. Since then, lotto fever has been sweeping the nation. In fact, when one group of restaurant workers mistakenly thought they won, they completely flipped out! No one can really blame their reaction, as celebrities from Hoda Kotb to Hulk Hogan were doing the same online.
Hopefully, you have 26, 41, 16, 22 and 42 on your ticket, as LottoNumbers.com list them as the five most commonly picked numbers. They might give you the edge to taking home the biggest prize ever! Plus, if you let a computer generate your numbers, you have an even greater chance of winning.
If you do happen to win, how should you spend your millions? Unlike a certain man in Nevada, who said he’d blow it on “hookers and cocaine,” you may want to take a hint from past Lotto winners. Marie Holmes, who won $564 million, used her money to buy her mother a house, pay for her education and take care of her sick son.

If no one claims the $1.5 billion dollar prize, the next lotto jackpot could be up to $2 billion dollars, making the eventual winner as rich as billionaires like Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Mark Cuban and Mark Zuckerberg. Wow!
Are you excited for the drawing, HollywoodLifers? Good luck!
