Historic jackpot of $1,568,400,000 last night in the multi-state Powerball lottery game has been won! Congratulations to to all those who beat the odds of 1 in 292.2 million – sadly, I wasn’t one of them.
The winning numbers: 08 27 34 04 19 PB 10 PP 02
After rolling over 19 times, Powerball Fever grew stronger. Realistically, with those kind of odds, I wasn’t even after the jackpot, I’d have been happy with a couple hundred thousand — enough to buy a home outright. Oh well, the jackpot resets and it all begins again.
To all those who won a large share of that $1.5 billion – make sure you sign your ticket and head thee straight to a financial advisor! Remember to make good choices! Smart financial planning goes a looooong way! 🙂
