Powerball Jackpot – $300 Million For Tonight’s Drawing
Even though Santa may have been very good to you last week I am guessing that you might have a few more things on your list you'd like to have. I realize money can't buy happiness but it does make being poor a lot easier to tolerate.
Spokesperson Kimberly Chopin with the Louisiana Lottery says tonight's big money draw could have an actual cash impact of $184.2 million dollars on a single winner. However, the big money isn't the only money that Powerball players could collect.
We like to remind players that if you don’t win that jackpot, still check your ticket because there are lots of other prizes to be won in PowerBall.
I don't know whether it's more people tend to play Powerball over the holidays or if it's just the luck of the season but there always seems to be somebody that gets their life changed around Christmas and New Year's. Tonight that someone could be you.
The last five pre-Christmas jackpots out of seven have actually been won during the holidays. So, let’s keep our fingers crossed that we get another win in Louisiana.
In a story published by the Louisiana Radio Network Chopin reminded would be Powerball players that you'll need to have your ticket purchased before 9 PM tonight. I would suggest you visit your Powerball retailer earlier in the day because ticket sales have been brisk and there most likely will be a line of people waiting to get their chance to score big with tonight's drawing.
