ANYONE HAVE $175,223,510 LYING AROUND?

Filed at 9:47 am under by dcobranchi

The Powerball jackpot is likely to hit almost $500M by Wednesday’s drawing. With odds of 1 in 175,223,510 it might make sense to play every possible combination (if you think there won’t be another winner). Of course, the jackpot is in the form of an annuity, so the present value is probably closer to $250M. So, maybe it’s not worth the gamble.

I think I’ll keep my $175,223,510 safely hidden away in my mattress.
