Winning a lottery jackpot is an amazing experience, but it also comes with some responsibilities. For example, it’s important to protect your identity as a winner. This way, you won’t be subjected to scam artists or long lost friends trying to steal your money. You should also hire a financial planner or a lawyer to help you invest your prize.
One big lottery jackpot is the Powerball jackpot. If you match six of the six numbers drawn, you could win the jackpot. This jackpot is estimated at $1.9 billion. It also comes with a lump sum option of $782.4 million. The jackpot is one of the largest in lottery history. As of Wednesday night, no one has won the jackpot. This is the longest streak without a winner since Aug. 3, 2016.
The Powerball jackpot will be drawn this Saturday at 10:59 p.m. ET. This is a huge jackpot that will probably cause a fever throughout the country. Luckily, there’s a small chance that someone will win this massive sum of money. A winner is advised to keep their winnings to themselves. They can also sell the tickets to others to help increase the jackpot size. However, it’s always a good idea to keep your winnings secret so you don’t trigger a grifter.
If you’re in the USA, chances are that you’re eligible to purchase a Powerball ticket. The odds of winning the jackpot are one in 292.2 million. If you win the jackpot, you’d take home a billion dollars after taxes.
