The Powerball jackpot is at $50 million, which means an estimated $35.4 million cash in your pocket for winning. To do so, you’d need to match all five white balls plus the powerball.
It sounds easy and it is entirely possible, even with odds at 1 in 292,201,338. Overall odds of cashing a winning ticket are a much more likely 1 in nearly 25.
