Powerball Jackpot for Wednesday Drawing Increased to Estimated $1.4 Billion [VIDEO]
The Multi-State Lottery Association said there was no matching ticket Saturday. The jackpot would have been a record $950 million.
Here's the theory... At $2 a ticket and 1 in 292 million odds, you could seemingly buy every Powerball combination for "just" $584 million... and still walk away with a massive profit.
If you were able to buy one ticket every second, it would still take you more than nine years to buy every combination. And that's optimistic! You have to ensure that you buy every number just once... not just 292 million quick-picks.
