It’s the largest drawing in jackpot history but there’s still a chance that no one will win the billion dollar prize! So what happens is no one wins the pot of gold? It just keeps growing!
Get ready to join your office pool because the Jan. 13 jackpot may come and go without a winner once again. This means that the $1.5 billion dollar prize could jump from $1.5 to $2 billion by the time the next draw happens but in the meantime we will just have to wait!
The odds are 1 in 292,201,338.00, which aren’t so bad … right? Well if you’re the lucky winner then congrats, take a vacation and hide your cash. But if no one comes out victorious, there will be a chance to win even more money and we’re talking $2 billion dollars. Then you’ll join the ranks of billionaires like Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, and Mark Zuckerberg.
