2017 was a whirlwind year for Canadians – in politics, entertainment, business, you name it! But the New Year is all about looking forward, viewing the future with hope and a sense of possibility, and there’s no better way to do that than to shoot for the stars with Powerball lottery tickets. Easy to play here in Canada, Powerball offers you the chance to become rich beyond your wildest dreams, but it also offers a number of smaller prizes that can turn your 2018 into a year to remember. With that in mind, this article lists the top four reasons to play Powerball in 2018!
Sure, there are a lot of ways to have expensive fun – going to a concert, taking a trip to Vegas, getting bottle service at a swanky club – but what about those enjoyable pastimes that don’t cost an arm and a leg? As you get into the stats more (see below!) and learn about playing the Powerball in Canada in different ways, using different techniques, it becomes an exciting game experience, one that’s inexpensive and eventful. Treating is a fun, bi-weekly ritual is the way to go – pleasantly surprised when the balls go your way and having fun even if they don’t.
“Nerd Out” with the Stats
As mentioned, part of the fun of playing Powerball is brushing up on stats, like past drawings, hot and cold numbers, and commonly drawn combinations. The same way people follow baseball stats as a way to engage in that sport, you can do with Powerball, adding complexity and research to your game.
The Chance of a Huge Fortune
Of course, no list on Powerball would be complete without mentioning the gargantuan jackpot. The largest jackpot ever posted in the history of any lottery was a Powerball jackpot of 1.6 billion dollars, an amount of money so big that it’s hard to even wrap your head around. You wouldn’t just be a millionaire; you’d be the equivalent of 1,600 millionaires! You could afford to give every single person in Canada $45 dollars. Or, you know, just buy a city block full of mansions! To think that with every draw you could win a ticket to a life of worry-free luxury is definitely a huge incentive to play the game, and it makes the whole experience that much more exciting.
Small Wins Can Add Up
But you can’t discount the thrill of a small win. Powerball has tiers to its prizes, and below the jackpot you can win anywhere between four and two million dollars. If you hit just four of your numbers, you win 100 dollars (or more if you’ve opted for a Power Play!), an amount that can add up over time. By the end of the year, you might find yourself with a healthy nest egg. It’s these little wins that keep the game so interesting week to week, even as you’re chasing the big jackpot.
2018 could be your big year, the year when you hit the Powerball jackpot and become richer than you’d ever imagined. But regardless of whether you win big in 2018, you know that Powerball is going to provide you with a ton of excitement
