# Indiana Powerball hit 340 Million \$

Posted 17 October 2005 - 07:36 AM

Wow. Someone in our depart came up with a good idea, and we are each pitching in \$1, once a week. If we win, we all split the cash. Though the chances are, well impossible, with 10 people paying in money for the tickets, we have 10x the chance!

All kidding aside my friends parents did this at Sandia National Labs in New Mexico and actually won. Some of you may have heard about it but my friends parents got something like 3.4 mil or something like that. Pretty crazy but still possible.

Crazy idea, but what if DIC started a powerball pool? ha, we can cover a few states (and countries for that matter). Granted if all of us are truthful with our winnings

(I know I'd keep it all if I won.)

I can legally gamble here but since the Powerball is over multiple states, what is the minimum age? 18 or 21?
