UPDATE: The winning numbers for the $2.04 billion dollar jackpot were finally drawn this morning in Tallahassee. Here they are:



Did you win? When will you know. Who knows? Today, I woke up to this headline: Powerball Glitch Delays Drawing As of this writing, there is STILL NO Powerball number drawn due to a “technical glitch.”


Powerball Glitch Delays Drawing

According to CNN:

All of the participants must submit the entries before the numbers are drawn. Because of the massive $1.9 billion dollar jackpot, all the entries didn’t make it in to Powerball headquarters in time.

“Powerball has stringent security requirements to protect the integrity of the game and remains committed to holding a drawing that gives all players a fair chance to win,” the statement said.

So, this sounds likes the moment in Bruce Almighty when everyone wins the lottery: 48 cents.

Have You Ever Won?

I’m not gonna lie. It IS a good feeling when you win money. But it also could be a little dangerous. I once won $1000 on a scratch ticket. It was a $5 dollar ticket. When you win above $500, you must visit the lottery headquarters to claim your prize. The payment is made by check with the appropriate taxes taken out on the spot. But when you have an EXTRA $1000 in the bank, a voice in your head (well, MY head) starts to say: Hey…..Mr. GOOD luck, you’re on a roll. Why not buy more tickets lucky man?!” 

I think there is a word for that: addiction? Well I’m glad to say, I never got there, and used the money properly. But it was tempting to play with house money! What would happen if I won the Powerball?
