Powerball in the USA

I cannot believe it but the powerball in the US jackballed as there was no winner, it's now swollen to $1.3 billion dollars, making it the biggest jackpot in the history of the world. I am sure many retailers here would love to sell tickets for that. It apparently has fueled a frenzy of lotto ticket buying across the United States. What an Australian retailer could do with a powerball like that is mind blowing.

In case you are thinking of entering from what I can determine, you don't need to be a US citizen to win, but *you* need to buy your ticket in the US. It is illegal to buy US lottery tickets online or through the mail, although there are many scammers which will tell you otherwise so please do not give them your money as you may find even if you win, you cannot collect.
