Millions of Americans wait in anticipation for tonight’s 10:59 p.m. drawing of the 900 million dollar jackpot. Ticket sales will end 59 minutes before the drawing, said Google News.
But the chances of winning is pretty slim. The associate professor of biostatistics at the University at Buffalo, Jeffrey Mieznikwski. Said it is 25 percent more likely to become the next president of the United States that to win at Powerball. But despite the extreme odds, people all over America are dreaming of what they would do with almost a billion dollars.
This will be the largest jackpot winning in America. The previous jackpot winning was held by Mega Millions at 656 million.
On Wednesday there was a previous drawing for Powerball but nobody won so the jackpot rose from 500 million to now 900 million. If nobody wins this drawing it is predicted that the winnings will rise to 1.3 billion by Wednesday, the next scheduled drawing.
