The woman and I both got a ticket w/ multiplier.
Giddeyup, I bought 10 this morning.......
Okay so the odds of you winning are 175,000,000 to 1. That means if you were to line up pennies from here to about San Francisco and mark one of those pennies with an X on it, you would have the same odds of winning the powerball as you would have of jumping in your car and stopping randomly between here and San Francisco and picking out the one penny with the X on it.
It would be like having 88 cups of salt in a pile and picking out the one grain of salt that is the winner.
It's astronomical. I try to get myself to buy tickets every time it gets big but I can never do it. I may buy some tickets today though.
What's this multiplier nonsense.
Mobius, someones gotta win! And since I've already purchased the winning ticket, you really should just save your money......unless you are wanting to donate a little more to me
Give me a million of your winnings and I won't go buy a ticket. I have faith in you!
Well just in case the gambling gods aren't on my side, which is unlikely, maybe you should buy 1.....
Got the office pool going and we are closing in on having a 100 tickets. With every ticket our chances of winning are going up by
I bought a ticket yesterday. I'm starting to think the lottery is a scam b/c I've never hit the Powerball Jackpot. I think I'm due though.
Odds of winning tonight's Powerball $500m jackpot: 1 in 176 million. So your chance of winning is .000000057%.
