Western New York Excited About Big Money Giveaway
How cool would it be to be able to travel to just about any Buffalo Bills game that you want to? You could fly first class. Stay in the premier hotels and even have luxury sweets in any stadium in the league! The dreams and possibilities are endless if you happen to strike it rich!
One of my favorite shows to veg out on is "My Lottery Dream Home" on HGTV. Winners from across the USA take their earnings to realtors and find the home they have always wanted to have now that they are millionaires! It could be you this week.
The current Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots are surging once again and there is a lot of money waiting for the right person. Monday night's Powerball drawing is an estimated $193 million and the Mega Millions drawing Tuesday will pay out an estimated $231 million!
When you consider what professional athletes are making these days, these jackpots are not that huge. But when you make more than $100 million, I would say that is a pretty good start to a retirement account. In fact, according to a recent study, the average American retirement account sits under $200,000.
That’s a much higher figure than you’ll find in other analyses including a 2017 report from the Government Accountability Office, which said that the median retirement savings was just more than $107,000 for Americans between the ages of 55 and 64.
But money is definitely not everything and there is much to be said for the "simple life" and living an humble life. Either way, it sure is fun to get a ticket and see where the dreams take you!
