That's right, the jackpot for the New York Powerball is up to $184 million dollars. The drawing takes place tonight (Saturday) at 11pm EST.
Each ticket costs a dollar. You choose 5 regular numbers and 1 Powerball number out of 59. The odds of drawing all 6 numbers is 1 in 195,249,054, which is pretty darned small.
Inside this small booth are instant ramen noodles, key chains, gum, snacks and cigarettes. There is just enough room for one guy to sit on a stool. I'm not sure whether this little booth is open 24/7, but many are.
