    Who Doesn't?

         Yes, the odds against winning the Powerball jackpot are currently at 175,223,510 to 1.  However, that two dollar ticket buys a fantasy that all of a person's dreams can come true.  For me, it is to have the ability to buy (or build) a mansion to house an extensive...

    I am not saying that it wouldnt be nice to be a multimillionaire, because it would be great not to have to work for a living. We (my wife and I) could do what we WANT to do instead of what we HAVE to do. It would be wonderful never again to have to worry about where the next...

    I just wasted two dollars on a lottery ticket.

    Hopefully, it's not really a waste. The payout is an expected 800 million so not really 1 billion but still $800 million sounds really really really nice

    is the biggest U.S. Lotto 1.5 billion. The Texas Power Ball. The odds are 175,000,000 to 1 so chances are slim. But would you be like the billionaire Bill Gates and donate most of your money to charity? What would you do?
