For those of us that have dreams of extending our means so we can live beyond them you can't beat the Powerball. Powerball is a multi-state lottery and each week it gives people like you and I the opportunity to win the chance to live the American dream for just a few bucks.

This  past Saturday night the Powerball Jackpot was a respectable $60-million dollars but not any longer. A single ticket purchased in California matched all the numbers and the Powerball to claim the games top prize. There were 10 tickets sold in Louisiana that matched 5 of the 6 numbers. That earned those ticket holders a payout of $2,657.00 each.The next Powerball drawing will be worth an estimated $40 million dollars.

There were no winners in the Louisiana Lottery's Lotto and Easy 5 games. Those jackpots will continue to increase. The next drawing for Lotto will be worth an estimated $625,000.00 and Easy 5 will have an estimated jackpot of $80,000.00
