Cindy saw advertisements for the $587.5 million Powerball Jackpot, deciding to try it. She bought five tickets at her local gas station, investing about $10 and letting the computer do the work. Her hopes weren’t high, and she left those tickets in her vehicle.
When she got home, Cindy told her daughter about the lottery, explaining how it was ridiculous to dream of winning. The next day, Cindy took her daughter to school and learned that someone in her state got the winning ticket.
