Port Vila, Vanuatu (PressExposure) September 08, 2009 -- Unemployment is running at its highest levels, millions have been lost in the credit crunch, banks are still under pressure and the average age of the population has dramatically increased. Governments are unable to promise the security of superannuation and age-pensions, they once did.
All the above are very real reasons for hundreds of people to queue in lines, in the hope of winning the $340 million Powerball the biggest lottery ever in history.
Last week, with no clear grand prize winner, the grand prize soars to an all time high, even though the lesser prizes totaled nearly $20 million. The highest winner to date, Jack Witaker of Scott Depot, West Virginia, won $315 million in 2002. So far the biggest winner this year is Brad Duke of Star, Idaho, who won more than $125 million. After all the taxes have been paid, this dwindles down to the winner receiving approximately $85m.
The odds of winning the grand prize, by matching five numbered balls (out of 55) and one red ball (out of 42), are 1: 146,107,962. Second-prize, which requires matching five white balls, to win $200,000 is 1: 3,563,609. Matching four whites and the red to win $10,000 are 1:584,432.
Many are asking "Is it worth the gamble?" There has to be a winner however and how would you feel if it was you?
There is however, a very unique prize being offered in Vanuatu, the hidden jewel of the South Pacific Seachange Lodge. A $1.8 million tropical island getaway is up for grabs at Win a Resort. With the chances being only 1 in 200,000, it is a unique opportunity that comes your way only once in lifetime. Win this and it is guaranteed to dramatically change your life.
This unique, total waterfront property could be your private tropical island hideaway, or it could be run as a small six-unit accommodation property, ensuring you have an income for life. This piece of paradise is just three hours out of Sydney, Australia, offering an experience that you wonât find anywhere else.
There are those of course who donât want to shift to a tropical island, where the food is organic, the air and water clean and the wilderness totally unspoiled, with friendly people just hanging out to smile and greet you wherever you go. You could win the property and every assistance will be given to help you quickly sell it and walk away with a One-time Fat Cheque. No TAXES to pay.
Take a few minutes to check it out. Particularly as you can no longer rely on your superannuation for security. You canât afford to miss this one.
