People are certainly up in arms with the hopes of becoming rich and soon. The Powerball jackpot has topped $300 million yet again as no-one matched the right numbers for the drawing on Wednesday, Sept. 11, 2013. The next drawing is on Saturday, Sept. 14, 2013 and tickets have certainly become the hot-seller wherever Jackpot is played.
Wednesday's numbers for the multi-state lottery drawing were: 11, 19, 33, 42, and 52. The Powerball number was 33.
While no-one ended up winning the jackpot in the recent drawing, a five-number matching ticket, with the Power Play option, was sold in Pennsylvania for a prize of $2 million.
Saturday's drawing for over $300 million has buyers clamoring to stores so they can get their tickets in hopes of winning big. If someone wins and chooses to take the lump sum, then they will take home around $200 million.
Richard Lustig is a seven-time lottery winner from Florida. While his tips won't definitely work for everyone, he does have some advice on just how to win:
- Do research: Go online and make sure the numbers you choose have never come up before.
- Buy with a plan: Commit to your numbers and learn what numbers to play and when.
- Choose your own numbers: Don't let the machine do it via a quick pick.
- Don't get caught up in the thrill: Just because the jackpot is big doesn't mean you have to spend more money. Spend no more than you normally do.
