BETter $2gether

$800 million for $2?

The ticket price for the Powerball Lottery seems like a clear sign to re-popularize the rarely seen (but real) two dollar bill featuring Thomas Jefferson, don’t you think?

This lottery and its eye-popping jackpot, now in its second round because of no initial winner from earlier this week, demands to be played. Not only is it affordable, but it’s fun and exciting.

Yes, the odds are sort of against us (1 in 292,201,338). Yes, $800 million is actually difficult to comprehend as being a real monetary value. And yes, remember during the drawing tomorrow to read and check your numbers very, very carefully…

The dumbest thing you can do is not risk your morning coffee money for the chance to win the $800 Powerball jackpot.

Unlike Lloyd, Christmas could come early for one of us this year!
