Technology is like two sides of a coin. On one side, it can help people get connected to the world and make life easier and on the other side, it can cheat a lot of people with many frauds. One example is on social network like Facebook. There are so many people who use it to take some advantages and now a bad man using a Facebook name Nolan Daniels is doing his bad game on it by making use the Powerball Fever which has just happened in the US last week.
And it seems that a lot of people are still very gullible or perhaps ‘blind’ especially when it is related to their human nature’s greediness or easy money. Well, it is true that everyone wants to taste some share from the Powerball jackpot won last week but what is going on Facebook is really stupid and proves that people are still easily deceived despite the late technology they have lived with.
You must have known about the Powerball drawing this week resulting in two winners to claim nearly $580 jackpot. This is such a big prize and no wonder that almost all Americans suffer from acute lotto fever on Wednesday. The tickets sales increased rapidly at almost 130,000 entries in a minute. This ticket frenzy and the unbelievable sales have just proved that lottery has become very popular and more American people want to get some instant cash. It will also indicate that once the winners are identified, they will be the most popular and the most sought people. Your life will not be the same again and you will need to adjust yourself with so many things so that you can cope with the new life.
Powerball Fever has just attacked America. Something really surprising has just happened this week. The Powerball official has decided to increase the amount of the prize which was previously set for $425 Million to be drawn on Wednesday to be $550 Million. Unbelievable! This will be a good chance for the lottery punters to strike it rich.
The decision to raise the amount of the prize is caused by the profound ticket sales. More and more lottery players buy the tickets after knowing that the jackpot was hideous. And now, after the jackpot becomes $550 Million, it seems that the number of lottery players joining will increase rapidly.
If won on Wednesday, it would be the second biggest Powerball jackpot in history. The jackpot will be $360 million if taken cash but perhaps the winner would prefer taking it as annuity because there will be longer period for the winner to get free income every year. According to the officials, the prize can even reach up to $600 million. It is going to be one of the biggest lottery prizes this year. Not bad for a Christmas present!
Lottery winning always brings people to wow and there are so many winners whose lives change spectacularly after they scoop the cash. Although the chance to win is relatively small as there are so many players while there are not enough prizes for everyone who joins, there are many of them who, either with their skills to predict the lottery numbers to be drawn or with the luck they have already got within them, could bring home quite a lot of money. And lottery prizes, be it $5 or $500 million will still make the winners smile and feel contented.
Not many people are as lucky as Chris and Colin Weir who won $161 million jackpot and not many winners are as generous as them. While most people change their lives dramatically after winning a big jackpot, Chris and Colin Weir still run their ordinary lives and spend some of their money for charity donation instead.
A day after winning the lottery, the couple received so many letters from different countries in the world to ask for some donation. Chris and Colin had already thought of giving some of their money for charity but they never thought that there would be so many people asking for help. They just did not expect to receive so many requests and of course they could not fulfill all of them.

The lottery world is still surprised with the news of brothers from New York waiting for 6 years to claim their winning. Many people are still wondering why Andy and Nayel Ashkar had to wait for a long time to contend what they could have celebrated years before. They said that the main reason is because Andy was about to get engaged and he wanted to make sure that his girlfriend marry him because of love and not money.
Bitter and sweet things have happened in lottery world.
