Powerball Prize Climbing Higher

The Powerball jackpot could reach a half billion dollars for the Wednesday night drawing. The game is played in 42 states, including South Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa.

Do you have Powerball fever yet?

Millions are expected to get it, in the run-up to the Wednesday night drawing, when the top prize could be up around a half billion dollars.

And the bigger prizes bring in even more ticket buyers.

An acquaintance who once worked at the South Dakota Lottery office used to get a kick out it when the big prizes started drawing more interest. Of course, in those days a $100 million jackpot was really a big deal.

Anyway, the minimum prize then was around $2 million, and if someone bought a ticket only when the jackpot got really big, my friend would say “What, isn’t two million enough?”

I guess it isn’t, but keep this in mind: you have a one in 175 million chance of taking home the jackpot.

So play responsibly and don’t spend your life savings, unless you want to meet all those long-lost relatives and friends who would come out of the woodwork with their hand out.
