Need Something To Do Friday?


Who doesn't dream of winning the lottery? You could either go the philanthropist route, hoard your not-well-earned cash or go on a celebrity-worthy spending spree.

Sadly, the odds of hitting the jackpot are pretty darn near impossible. But if you pick up an Idaho $1 Million Raffle ticket today, your odds are much better than winning the bajillion-dollar Powerball Prize—one in 250,000, to be exact. You have until noon today to scoop one up, but hurry, because when they're gone, they're gone. The winner will be announced at 9 p.m.

You could win $1 million if you're really, really lucky. But if even you have half-decent karma, you might walk away with $50, $100, $250 or $25,000. If you're one of those people whose stomach gets a little queasy at the mention of the word "gambling," check out the Idaho Lottery's website and take a gander at the places the money goes—you'll probably feel better.
