Powerball jackpot to hit record $425 million

USA – As the Powerball top prize gets higher and higher, should you buy a ticket?

Powerball hasn’t had a winner in a couple of months, but the people flocking to grab tickets are hoping to change that.

The record-breaking Powerball top prize has surpassed $400 million, and could be raised even higher before the drawing on Wednesday.

Let’s put it in perspective here:

  • The odds of winning are about 1 in 175 million.
  • You’re 25 times more likely to win an Academy Award than win this lottery.
  • You’re 100 times more likely to die of flesh eating bacteria.
  • Heck, you’re more likely to get injured by your own toilet than win Powerball.

But don’t let the odds stop you! You can’t win it if you don’t play it.
