USA – $550 million is waiting for you and all you have to do is buy the right Powerball ticket. Cash option guarantees you a little over $300 million. Can you imagine all the things you’re gonna do with that jackpot, Mr. or Ms. Money Bags?

Yeah!  The next Donald Trump in town. You want to make it big, live it large, own the house of your dreams and the car of everybody else’s dreams. Good luck with that tonight. But did you know that this year, from Jan. 1 to April 30, more than $24 million in unclaimed lottery prize money in Texas was transferred to state coffers.

We’re talking about folks who lost their tickets or didn’t even know they won.

Anyhow, money may not buy happiness, but let’s be honest: it doesn’t hurt either.
