Tonight’s Powerball Jackpot Soars to $137 Million
Right now would be the perfect time to win the lottery and take a vacation to a private island somewhere until the election is all figured out. Let's be real, we've all thought about what we'd do if we won a giant lump sum of money. I think we all secretly think it'll happen for us sometime.
According to the Powerball website, tonight's jackpot is up to an estimated $137 million. You don't have to be good at math to know that's a lot of money. You also don't need to be good at math to know the odds aren't in your favor. However, you can't win if you don't play.
The jackpot has grown even bigger since there were no winners on Saturday, October 31. Halloween's winning numbers were 02, 06, 40, 42, 55 and 24 was the Powerball.
If you happen to win the jackpot tonight, you've got two options--a lump sum of cash payments over time. The cash option will land you a whopping $106.6 million. My tiny human brain can't even wrap my head around how much money that even is. It would probably take my entire life to count it all.
The drawing happens tonight at 10 p.m. That means, you've got until 9 p.m. to buy your ticket.
According to a 2017 list put together by KARE 11, the luckiest placse in central Minnesota to buy a Powerball ticket are Cash Wise Foods in Waite Park and Coborn's in Sauk Rapids.
