Guarantee a Powerball Win by Buying Every Possible Number?

It’s an interesting question, and the answer is YES! But it’s a not a good idea.

It would cost $584 million to buy every combination, and you’d need a whole army of people buying them around the clock to have enough time to buy all 292 million tickets.

The lump-sum jackpot payment is estimated to be about $868 million, which would give you a $284 million profit if you bought every ticket.

But, if any OTHER person hits the jackpot and you have to split it, you go from a $284 million win to at least a $100 million loss.  And you’ve only got a 22% chance of being the only winner . . . which makes it a TERRIBLE bet!
