Powerball Jackpot Now $500 Million: How Do You Choose Your Lottery Numbers? [UPDATE]

The Powerball Lottery continuously rolled over the past few drawings, and the winning pot has now climbed to $500 million.

Have you purchased a ticket, yet?

Yes, yes...there are always those folks who say you have a better chance getting hit by lightning  - twice - than winning. But, someone's got to win, right?

Better hurry to get in on this game, the next drawing is today, Wednesday, Nov. 28.

Pick your own numbers and use combo patterns 2/4 4/2 3/3 odd/even or even/odd. Your chances of winning are far greater than a quick pick.

really Jim, love to hear more. I usually invert the total from the last receipt for shoes I bought and divide it by my stereo. I find this really ups my chances.

I pick a number from 1 to 10for the first number. I then double it and subtract 3 for the second number. Next, I take the second number to the power of two and divide by 2 for the third number. I than take the third number, multiply it by 3 and divide by the square root of 4 for the fourth number. For the fifth number, I take the number of children that I have in my family, multiply by 7 and divide by 3. Finally, I take the number of ridiculous stories (like this one) that appear in the patch, multiply by 4, divide by 7 and use that as my Powerball number. I haven't won yet, by hey, you never know:)

The odds of 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 are the same as anything else. And easy to remember, too.

I have a job I enjoy going to every morning so that I don't have to worry about buying lottery tickets fornthe rest of my life and praying by some "1 and a trillion" chance that I win. the less stuff I own the happier I am. I wish others would realize that this money is not the answer to your problems. Be good to others, help family, friends, and strangers whenever you can, and be apart of what is right in this world. Do this, and you will sleep good at night every day of your life. Take care
