For sale: Powerball tickets

I have one Powerball ticket for Wednesday's $1.3 billion drawing. Odds of winning are 1/300 million which makes every individual ticket worth approximately $4.25 apiece.
I'll cut a deal and sell it to you for $4 even.

Afraid you won't nab this deal in time? Don't worry. I have a few in my possession. So I promise everyone who wants to buy one will get one.

If $4 apiece is too high for you, I also have several available for the $900 million drawing. Since the jackpot is less, of course my price would reflect that. I could go as low as $3.33 each. Or make me an offer. I'm not stubborn.

Cute, but let's not have joke posts like this in the Marketplace.
