ATLANTA — The Powerball jackpot has grown to $305 million for Wednesday's drawing.
The prize grew after no one matched all six numbers in the multi-state lottery drawing Saturday night. The winning numbers were: 4, 13, 39, 46 and 51. The Powerball was 1.
Although no one hit the jackpot, several people made out nicely. Five Powerball tickets won $1 million because they matched five of the six winning numbers, according to the official Powerball website. The million-dollar tickets were sold in Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
No one has won big in Powerball since June 23, when a couple from Connecticut won $60 million.

Sucker Bet

Suckers lose way more than they win. Lotteries are a tax on stupid people.

No! I read somewhere that

No! I read somewhere that Lotto, (government) is the solution! (Tongue firmly in cheek)

Well, now the "I'll only play when it's over a couple of a 100 million", will participate now. Someone has to win it.

Solutions abound.
