Lotteries enter the billion dollar era

powerballBillionMegaMillionsMillionPowerBall surpassed $1 Billion grand prize this weekend; the largest lottery jackpot ever.

When I went to check my numbers on the txlottery.org website (I won $4) I noticed the background image for the jackpot was changed from Millions to Billions. I thought that’s a trip.

The next drawing is Wednesday (1/13/2016) for an estimated 1.3 Billion dollars.
