Powerball jackpot surges to $1.6 billion
Despite the record-breaking jackpot of $1.6 billion, the Powerball drawing on Saturday night was still without a grand prize winner. The jackpot has not won in the last 39 drawings. That would tie a game record for consecutive drawings without a grand prize winner.
After the jackpot reached a record of $1.586 billion in 2016, three Powerball winners took home the prize. In 2021, two Powerball winners each won $1 million. In 2022, a California player won $700 million.

One of these being scratch-off games, which can be played by anyone, at any time, and for as little as a few dollars. A good scratch-off game will pay you back in a variety of ways.

Despite the fact that the state of Texas has a lot more money in the bank than the average American household, it’s still a lottery state, and one that’s a pretty good bet to keep the lottery ball in the air for the foreseeable future.

People with low incomes don’t play
Despite the popular myth that lotteries are for the rich and the poor, it turns out that lottery tickets are mostly purchased by lower-income households. Moreover, according to a study by the Howard Center for Investigative Journalism, lottery retailers disproportionately cluster in lower-income communities across almost every state.
One study analyzed cellphone location data and found that people who lived in lower-income ZIP codes contributed a disproportionate share of lottery revenue. Another study found that the lottery has driven a multibillion-dollar transfer of wealth from low-income communities to multinational corporations.Read More
