Powerball hype returns as jackpot hits $270 million
No one won Wednesday night's drawing, boosting the prize for Saturday.
The jackpot now stands at $270 million after no one won Wednesday night's drawing. And that's fueling some big dreams in 43 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The newest prize is the latest in a year of big jackpots, which should tell you how unlucky we all are. The jackpots keep growing because no one's winning, people!
But that isn't stopping folks from imagining the possibilities. One Twitter user said that "$270M would look amazing in my account right about now." Well, it wouldn't actually be $270 million because there's that tiny matter of taxes to contend with, but go ahead and dream.
The odds of winning are one in 175 million, but hey, don't let that stop you. As another Twitter user remarked wistfully, "I need to win that Powerball so I can hit that reset button." Don't we all, sir, don't we all.

I hope I will win regardless whts going on I need to satisfy myself and help my family.

[BRIEFING.COM] The S&P 500 shed 0.1%, registering its fourth consecutive decline. Today's session proved to be a bit of a roller coaster ride for stocks as the S&P 500 opened in the red, rallied into positive territory, fell to fresh lows, and regained the bulk of its losses into the close.
