Powerball Ticket Price Goes Up

If you drive like a crazy person to your nearest gas station in hopes of hitting the Powerball, I have some news for you.

It just got twice as expensive to become a multimillionaire overnight.

As of this week, it now costs $2 for a single Powerball lottery ticket. They used to cost $1.

And no, for double the price, you won’t get double the odds of winning. You’ll get slightly better odds at winning a prize…from one-in-35 before, to one-in-32 now.

Of course, that includes all prizes, even the couple of bucks you get for just getting the Powerball number right.

The big  jackpot will now start at $40 million instead of $20 million. Your odds of taking down the full jackpot…getting all five numbers correct and the Powerball correct too are about 1 in 195 million.

Good luck!
