Even though this is only a third tier prize, there is money left that can change anyone’s life in the blink of an eye.
The numbers that could have made someone a millionaire were 15, 22, 38, 54, and 66, with 3 being the Red Powerball number.

Should this person be frustrated for missing the jackpot by a number? Personally, I wouldn’t care. I would take the $ 50,000.

Now that Powerball is still up for grabs, it sits at $ 161 million. The next Powerball draw will take place on Wednesday July 21 at 10:59 pm.
I know the odds of being the real lottery winner are slim, but I’m going to take my chances because even if it’s only a few thousand, I’ll take it anyway.
