By now you’ve heard that Powerball jackpot has climbed to an estimated $600 million, making it the largest prize in the history of the Powerball game! This Saturday someone may win the world’s second* largest lottery prize, EVER! Will it be YOU?
The “pot” has been growing quickly since Wednesday & people have been buying even more of the $2 tickets, due to the fact that there wasn’t a winner. Officials say the jackpot has grown by an estimated $236 million since Wednesday’s winnerless drawing.

The reason the jackpot amount is so high, right now is because it has been growing & growing over the past 6 weeks! The last winning Powerball ticket was drawn on March 30…& the next one will most likely be this Saturday night!

Now the question is: Quick Picks or pick your own numbers? There is no real answer, both have their advantages and draw backs. I’ve heard that 70-80% of lottery ticket purchases are Quick Picks, and that 70-80% of Powerball winners have won with a Quick Pick. So, is there a difference and if so, which method is better? Who Knows!?

Try both methods or think about which feels luckier & go with your gut! If you prefer to choose your own numbers, individually check out the info I’ve uncovered
.
Since the odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are about 1 in 175 million, I figured I’d do a little research and compile a list of numbers to think about before you choose your “winning” Powerball numbers!
