Before you start thinking about what you'd do with $450 million, let's get serious: You're not going to win.
Your chances of hitting the jackpot and taking home the entire Powerball winnings are extremely small -- one in 175 million, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association. So too are the odds that you'll take home a smaller prize of $1 million (one in 5 million) or even $100 (one in 12,000.
Chances of winning the lottery if you don't buy a ticket? Zero. So I'll gladly take odds of 1 in several million and still believe it could be me. As the old saying goes, "You've got to be in it to win it." Frankly, it's all down to luck. Nothing else really counts. So I've made up a little free and just-for-fun page which generates your own personal 'lucky' quick pick numbers. Who knows, it might work - you just never know your luck... As I say, it is completely free and just a bit of fun, so look out for VillaLibra Lucky Numbers if you want to see if you can locate it for yourself.
We've been fed these statistics for decades and while I don't purchase a lottery ticket simply due to odds, one thing does occur to me. Nobody is going to die from being hit by an asteroid, not many will be killed by lightening but somebody will definitely win the lottery.
