Lottery ticket buyers have to suspend their belief in math to drop $2 on an infinitesimal chance to win the Powerball jackpot, but in Nevada, they also have to drive across the desert and wait in lines that can stretch for hours.
Taxes can eat up close to half a Powerball jackpot, but the amount taken out can vary widely depending on where a winner lives -- meaning state and local taxes can mean a difference of tens of millions of dollars.
The payout for Saturday’s Powerball lottery is now up to a record setting $700 million and could continue to grow. Not surprisingly, lots of New Jersey residents are making plans for how they’ll spend all of that loot if they manage to pick the right numbers.
