Ready to be Powerball or Mega Millions winner? But are you really?
So you're ready to win the Powerball and Mega Millions? You have a better chance of being struck by lightning and bitten by a shark simultaneously, but reality's a bummer. It's more fun to fancy oneself doing the Scrooge McDuck in a vault full of gold coins. Fortunately, there's time to prepare yourself for this historic windfall. After both the major lotteries rolled over, the kitties now stand at $1.6 b-b-b-billion, with a B, for Mega Millions and $620 million for Powerball. New numbers will be drawn Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively.
