Some creative signage at Pick n’ Save north in West Bend as the Powerball jackpot outgrew the display.
Lottery outlets across Richfield, Kewaskum, Slinger, Hartford and the rest of Washington County are expected to be busy this week churning out Powerball tickets. The odds of winning are pretty, pretty slim – even if you are really, really lucky.
A posting in the Chicago Tribune said chances are “one in 292.2 million.”
You have zero chance of winning if you don’t play. Some odds makers say your chances improve if you let the computer pick the numbers – but, really – if the computer were that good, wouldn’t we have had a winner by now?
