Ok here is the scoop, There have been 39 drawings in a row without a Powerball grand prize winner. The last time someone hit the jackpot was June 5th.  That kind of gives you an idea of how hard it is to win. It is up to over 620 Million right now and growing.

What Are The Odds?

Here are the odds, are you ready?  The Michigan Lottery says approximately 1 in every 24.87 Powerball tickets sold are winners. The likelihood of winning the jackpot is 1 in 292,201,338.  But eventually, someone does win.

So here are some things that are more likely to happen than winning the Powerball Jackpot according to


An asteroid hitting the Earth

Die in a plane crash

Have conjoined twins

Get killed by a vending machine

Get attacked by a shark


And this has stuck in my mind that someone told me years ago, You're more likely to get struck by lighting 7 times before winning Mega-Millions or Powerball.

Someone's Gotta Win

Remember though, Someone has to win it, so it may as well be you. Yes, I will take my 10 or 20 dollars shot once in a while.  Remember one thing is for sure, you can't win if you don't Play.

I am off to the gas station to try 20 bucks in quick pick. Good luck Kids.
