The Powerball jackpot for Wednesday night’s drawing is estimated to hit $500 million due to a meteoric rise in ticket sales. Be sure to buy tickets before the 9:30pm deadline, because experts predict that there’ll most certainly be a winner this time.
However, statistics show it probably won’t be me or you to walk away with the prize. The odds of a person getting struck by lightning in their lifetime are 1 in 5,000. The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1 in 175 million. Although the math isn’t in our favor, what’s the point of playing the game if you’re afraid of striking out?
Here are 10 songs to get you ready for tonight’s 11:20pm drawing. If you happen to be the winner, you must promise to call into Mix at 617-931-1234 to share your story.
