Tonight is the night: not only will Arsenal play Bayern Munich in the eighth finals of the 2013/2014 Champions League, a monumental $400 million US Powerball draw is also set to happen! Definitely a night of excitement for both sports fans and lottery lovers!
Rollover for Mega Millions; Barcelona beats Manchester City
If there is any wisdom to be taken from last night’s events in the worlds of football and lotteries, the foresight for tonight’s Arsenal game against last years’s Champions League winners, Bayern Munich, is not a very promising one. Mega Millions, US Powerball’s biggest rival, rolled over and now offers a $172 million jackpot, while Manchester City was defeated by Barcelona (0-2) in the first (home) game of the Champions League eighth finals. Although Manchester City is considered one of the top teams in Europe, Barcelona was the favorite in the game, and the same goes for Bayern Munich in tonight’s game versus Arsenal. If the Germans win, the US Powerball jackpot should roll over once again, according to the analogy made above.
Following our train of thought from the previous paragraph an Arsenal victory tonight will indicate that the Powerball jackpot will be won in tonight’s draw! An exciting foresight for lottery fans, because a $400 million jackpot is not something that comes around every day of the week. It is actually only the sixth time ever that a jackpot reaches the amount of $400 million!
Naturally, the assumptions made in this article are not based on any valid statistical information, so please don’t take them as a truth set in stone! However, both football and lotteries are subjects that invite a certain amount of superstition in our reasoning. Naturally, we will cheer along with our UK players and followers for an Arsenal victory tonight! And afterwards, we will await the Powerball draw anxiously!
Make sure you buy your US Powerball tickets for tonight’s draw! If the jackpot does fall, it would be a real shame if you didn’t win it because you failed to buy your tickets in time!
