The Powerball jackpot skyrockets to $1.3 BILLION

Since no winners were found for the $949.8 million Powerball jackpot that was drawn on Saturday the 9th of January, the Powerball jackpot has now skyrocketed to a record shattering $1.3 billion dollars. This is by far the largest jackpot in US Powerball history, and the Powerball ticket sales have been going through the roof with Powerball ticket sales reaching $277 million on Friday and more than $400 million Saturday according to Gary Grief, the executive director of the Texas Lottery. But what are your chances of winning the Powerball? There are 292.2 million possible combinations of the 5 white balls and the red Powerball. Therefore, you have 1 chance in 292.2 million of winning, but with a $1.3 billion dollar jackpot hanging in the balance, it is definitely worth it.
