More than a million to one, that's for sure. One in 292 million, so the internets say. But it only takes one. And I bought two tickets, so I doubled my odds........well......kind of.
Yeah - I bought a ticket. I'm guessing my odds would be better with Megamillions, as probably no one is jonesing for a measly $15MM, so I might have been the only one playing. ....had I played.
I would "joke" that I'd never play any lotto unless it was over $120MM, because, how could I live on anything less?
Let's assume I had to split that $125M with 710. I'm already at a measly $62M and that's before taxes. Going with my genetics, knowing I will most likely live until 93-95 years old, I can barely spend a million per year just to get by! I may as well get a "Will Work for Caviar" placard made up, when I stand at my personal heliport landing.
We should hope that I win all this moolah last night (like I'm staying up for the drawing!), because if no one does, the next drawing will definitely go past a billion bucks - and then I'll have to recalculate to see how I could have ever gotten by on a mere 9-figure sum.
As it turns out I WON Powerball.
I just didn't get the first five numbers.
