The Powerball jackpot is now estimated to be over five million dollars for tonight's drawing. This may send you on a mad dash to buy as many tickets as you can afford. There are a few things you may need to know before you head out.

I also have dreams of winning this huge jackpot. I would have a fleet of boats, trucks, cars, a house in the mountains, one on the beach ..... (and so on.) I would also start my huge non-profit organization to give away most of the money to various worthy causes. But that is not what you are reading this for.

According to The Spark ...Dr. Min Su Kim studied winning Powerball numbers from the last ten years and foud the most drawn Powerball number is 20. The most popular white ball is 42. It should be pointed out that Dr Kim has never won the Powerball though. Read more about his research here.

Your odds of winning the Powerball are one in 175,000,000. You have better odds of winning an Academy Award, being killed by a falling coconut, being killed by a fireworks accident or being eaten by flesh eating bacteria. Get more info here.

With that in mind I am off to buy my tickets.
