The last few weeks have been legendary ones in the world of the lottery. The Powerball has seen historic jackpots of $600,000 million and $800,000 million consecutively. And because no one won, the drawing on Saturday it is now up to a legendary $1.3 billion dollars – the largest jackpot in word history.
These extremely large jackpots usually mean a few things –
- People usually come out in droves to gamble on the winning jackpot
- You hear loads of stories about what these gamblers will do if they win a portion of it
- Gamblers and non gamblers obsess about the lottery for days talking about it, fantasizing about it and learning about it.
That’s nothing you don’t already know. What you don’t know but should is this. Lotto players are lousy gamblers. Those lousy gamblers always appear in droves as these large lottos are announced. I’m sorry to say that if you are planning to participate in this week’s Powerball, you are probably one of them.
