Tonight is the $500 MILLION Powerball drawing. Oh the things you could buy with all that money!!! However, your odds of winning are one in 175 million. Fortunately, we've got some tips that might increase those odds just a little bit.
Here are five expert tips for winning tonight's Powerball. Of course, we can't guarantee that using these will make you win...but who knows...they just might. (stranger things have happened...right???)
#1.) Don't bother letting the machine pick random numbers. Customized numbers have the same chance of winning.
#2.) Don't pick popular lucky numbers like seven or numbers under 31 because those could be birthdays. More people will have those numbers and could end up splitting the jackpot with you. You're hoping you have obscure numbers, and they hit.
#3.) The only way to increase your real odds? Buying more tickets.
#4.) Don't pick the same number for the Powerball every time.
#5.) Finally, make sure if you're in a lottery pool, you send photo proof of the tickets you bought for the group and ones you bought for yourself. You don't need the inevitable lawsuit if that line is blurred.
