The jackpots for the Mega Millions and Powerball are getting crazy-big. Like, this isn't just retire immediately kind of money. These winnings would be more money than most of us could conceive of spending in a lifetime.

The Mega Millions jackpot is estimated at $405 million (next drawing: Sept. 17). The Powerball jackpot is estimated at $432 million (next drawing Sept. 15).

If you want to try your luck, you should try my new favorite app: Jackpocket is the first officially licensed New Jersey Lottery app, so you can play all your favorite Lottery games, including Mega Millions, Powerball and Pick 3. A New Jersey native even won more than $1 million in Cash 4 Life with Jackpocket, and this app makes it really easy and convenient to buy and organize Lottery tickets.

For a limited time, get your first Mega Million or Powerball ticket free in Jackpocket using code “CASH.”

My lucky numbers are 6 and 13. (Six was always my number on my sports jerseys; 13 is my fiancée's family number and it has brought me a ton of luck at the roulette tables at the casinos.) I've been punching those numbers into Jackpocket a lot.


Not to worry, if you don't have your own lucky numbers, you don't need to steal mine — the app has random quick pick, too. If you win, you can withdraw your winnings straight to your bank account.

How cool would it be if you won big on a free Lottery ticket? If I really cashed in, first I'd make sure my parents were taken care of, but then my fiancee and I would throw the celebrity-style wedding of our dreams and take our families on the ultimate vacation full of bonding and relaxation.

If I could swing it, I'd own part of UFC, too. Doesn't hurt to dream big!

But what are you waiting for? Get your free ticket and your chance at the big jackpot! You must be at least 18 years old to play, and you can find all the terms of service at Also, if you think you might have a gambling problem, call1-800-Gambler.
