Everything is expensive right now! Gas. Groceries. Housing. Winning the next Powerball drawing wouldn't just make things easier, it would be life-changing! 

If you went to bed on Wednesday night with dreams of waking up a millionaire, you were probably really disappointed when you checked your ticket on Thursday morning and discovered that you did NOT win the $1.6 billion drawing.

Don't be too disappointed! NO ONE won Wednesday night's drawing which means the jackpot grows to $1.4 billion for the drawing set for Saturday, October 6. It's the third largest Powerball jackpot of all time.

We're talking about the cost of holiday meals and plane tickets to visit family, too. A big lottery win would certainly make the holiday season easier.
