You're odds are 1 in 292 million, but totally worth taking the chance!  The Powerball grand prize is at $450 million for tonight's drawing.  Are you in?

It would REALLY take a miracle for my husband and I to win because we are 'jump on the bandwagon' players when the prize gets into the millions, otherwise we don't play very regularly.  As of last Saturday, the Powerball has been played 17 times without a winner, that's $50 million more than what the Multi-State Lottery Association officials had thought the total would be.

How many times have you heard of someone who threw the ticket away or lost it?  Lottery officials say you should always sign your ticket when you purchase it so no one else can claim it's theirs and then check your ticket as soon as the numbers are drawn.

Good advice since a very long time ago my co-host had purchased a Powerball ticket and had it laying in the studio on the counter.  Well, I didn't know, I had never bought a Powerball ticket before at that time and I took a song request (still remember, it was for Clint Black) and wrote it right where my co-host would have signed had he won any money.  LOL!  I guess Clint Black would have had to come and claim the prize!

The drawing is tonight at 10pm.  If you choose to play and try to win the $450 million Powerball jackpot, good luck to you.  That would get 2016 off to a great start and you'd make a haul.   That's one part of history I wouldn't mind being part of!
