As I look at an email I just got from the Illinois Lottery, I see that tonight's Powerball drawing has about $730 million reasons for you to consider playing. As the Illinois Lottery's Jessica Perez explains, "This is the fourth largest Powerball prize in game history and the sixth highest jackpot in U.S. lottery history."
Talk about bad luck! A woman from downstate Decatur will not get $50,000.00 that she won from the Illinois lottery, even though she purchased the actual winning ticket. The reason she will not get the money is because of the person she lived with.
