Lottery fever is in the news this week because the Powerball jackpot is $245 million tonight. The odds of winning are ridiculously small (1 in 195 million) but everybody suddenly plays anyway. Why not play when the local jackpot is only a million? That’s a lot of money to most people too, isn’t it?
So what would you do if you won $245 million?
I would NOT buy a Bentley, $5000 suits or $500 shoes. I would avoid publicity at all costs.
I WOULD find a way to help fund some non-profit organizations that mean something to me.
Great to think about this stuff, isn’t it? However, I guess I actually have to buy the lottery tickets to have any chance of winning.
