So far, the new higher-priced Powerball game has proven that it costs twice as much as it used to…to lose.
Tickets are two-dollars now. Nobody has won the jackpot since the price increase went into effect. But the jackpots are going up faster and Wednesday night’s drawing will be for a quarter-billion dollars. The one time payout will be an estimated 156-million.
Megamillions, still only a buck a ticket, is at 32 milion for tomorrow night’s drawing. The one-time payout is about 23-and-a-half million.
