Will you still play Powerball with extra numbers? Caller Richard's giving up

What are the odds of you winning the Powerball jackpot? And how often do you play?

Well, caller Richard plans on quitting the game because they are increasing the numbers to choose from.

Richard called in during the open line on the Eusebius McKaiser show voiced his concerns regarding the addition of numbers to choose from on Powerball.

He says that it was announced on Powerball's website that the numbers to choose from will increase from 45 to 50.

No one can win Powerball if the when the odds are getting worse and worse.

Richard, Caller

Already the odds are about 24 million to one to get the right solution.

Richard, Caller

If they increase the numbers it will go up by 50 to million chances to one if they increase the numbers from 45 to 50.

Richard, Caller

Richard says he's been playing Powerball since it started but will stop if they increase the numbers.

Quite frankly you have more chances of being struck by lightning or being taken by a shark than willing the lotto with these odds.

Richard, Caller

Take a listen to why Richard is quitting Powerball...
