The Powerball jackpot for Wednesday night’s drawing is estimated to hit $500 million due to a meteoric rise in ticket sales. Be sure to buy tickets before the 9:30pm deadline, because experts predict that there’ll most certainly be a winner this time.
However, statistics show it probably won’t be me or you to walk away with the prize. The odds of a person getting struck by lightning in their lifetime are 1 in 5,000. The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1 in 175 million. Although the math isn’t in our favor, what’s the point of playing the game if you’re afraid of striking out?
Here are 10 songs to get you ready for tonight’s 11:20pm drawing!
Gwen Stefani, “Rich Girl”
If you win the $500 million Powerball jackpot and you just so happen to be a female, then this song is about you!
Fat Joe, “Make It Rain”
Just think of all the precipitation coming down in the club if it’s YOU that’s named the Powerball jackpot winner!
Travie McCoy, “Billionaire”
Electing to take the up-front cash option means you’d walk away with approximately $327 million before taxes. Not bad eh? Well on your way to a billion, indeed.

With $500 million you’d be richer than Beyonce. Think about that!
