The Powerball jackpot is estimated to be $550 million dollars for this Saturday’s drawing, with the cash option at an estimated $350 million dollars. This would be the second largest jackpot in Powerball history, the largest was last November, when a $587.5 million jackpot was won.The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot is 1 in 195 million. You are 251 times more likely to be hit by lightning.

Skip Garibaldi, a professor of mathematics at Emory University, adds these ‘fun’ facts. You are more likely to die from all of the following than you are to winning Saturday’s jackpot drawing: be hit by a falling coconut, be blown up by fireworks, or be eaten by flesh-eating bacteria.

However, the old saying, you can’t win if you don’t play holds true. So, as you wait in line to get your ‘golden ticket’, you are probably daydreaming of what you would do with all that money. We want to know!
