Before winning the Powerball Jackpot, which now stands at $1.4 billion and counting, I would like to state:
Personally I believe there should be a new multi-state lottery, or reform in the existing ones. A relative with whom I happen to agree on this pointed out once when one of these jackpots grew ridiculously high, they could help the economy much more by creating a game where 300 people won $1 million, than one poor person struggling under the load of $300 million! All they would have to do is create a game with better odds. Then maybe even people good at math will play!
P. S. Also as far as odds go, I wonder what the odds are that the winner will even be someone you know!
