From James Harvey: The Powerball Jackpot is $425m. Should you play? (It’s too late for you to care – I’m writing this at 7:51 PM Pacific time, and the drawing is at 7:59 – but if nobody wins, you might care on Saturday, with a bigger number.) Harvey’s conclusion: it basically never makes sense to play, because as the jackpot goes up the likelihood of having to split it also goes up. But he’s still in it, for the entertainment value.
I’ve got some tickets, too, because some coworkers went in on a pool, and I don’t want to be the sucker who has to go to work tomorrow.
