At the time of this writing, the Powerball jackpot is at $620 million while the Mega Millions jackpot is at a whopping $1.6 billion! Is this enough for you? Seriously, how much higher can this run of high jackpots go? And if you were the sole winner of a jackpot, what would you do at that point besides the typical "spend it" or "invest it"? Easy for regular folk like you and me to answer but if I were put in that situation, I think my mind would be racing 1 million miles a minute, wondering what I should do first.
With lottery fever, the only cure is not winning at all and someone else winning the jackpot. But if you happen to be the fortunate one that hits all numbers, your "lotto illness" only increases!
Of course, my chances of winning a major jackpot are as good as marrying a television news woman reporter!
