These Lucky Lottery Numbers Could Make You A Billionaire

Over the years, the Powerball Jackpot has broken the record as the largest in United States history. And every time it comes back around, Las Vegas residents are scrambling to find a place to buy a lottery ticket.

Most of us run down to Primm on the border of California, but the lines there get ridiculously long. Sometimes more than and hour, or worse. But since the lottery still isn’t legal in Nevada, there aren’t a lot of choices for locals who want to play.

Ways To Cash In Your Lottery Ticket After You Win

Of course, many people who do win don’t want to wait for payments and instead choose to get paid all at once in a lump sum. Even though it’s significantly less money, it’s still amounts to a ton for the old bank account.

Still, the chance of someone winning the jackpot in Powerball isn’t great. It’s hard to do because all six balls (five white balls and the Powerball red) have to be matched up with the ticket.

But players still play because the odds of winning another prize in the lottery is much better than winning the Powerball jackpot. Those odds are about 1 in 24.9. That definitely makes a ticket worth the cost, even when you factor in the gas it takes us to get to it.

Because for Las Vegas residents, it’s not as simple as just buying a ticket. Since our jurisdiction in Nevada prevents companies from selling lottery tickets, locals have to travel to cities around Southern Nevada to find one. And most of us flock to Primm because it’s the obvious choice.

But what we gain in travel time, we lose in the time we take standing in that line. So, if you’re looking to get into a drawing in the near future, maybe consider getting a ticket from one of these nearby cities. They’re all less than a 2-hour drive from Las Vegas. And the lines are most likely shorter than the ones at the state line.
