Shaun Deeb Chases Massive $1.9 Billion Powerball Jackpot by Creating a Huge Player Pool

Shaun Deeb is running a huge player pool with a possible $1.9 billion powerball jackpot up for grabs. The tournament legend half-jokingly tweeted to ask who was going to organise the 292 million entries to cover every combo of Powerball. A Day later he was taking on the effort himself.

Shaun Deeb Aims at $1.9 Billion Powerball Jackpot

Even though the odds are unfavourable for a big win, many of Shaun Deeb’s followers decided to get on board, even with a $525 minimum investment.

He also couldn’t resist the idea of getting his wife to handle all the transactions for 5% juice.

In the end, the order was 45,000 tickets at $2 each. Robert Mizrachi quickly calculated that the odds of winning from this pile of entries is still 6,488.8/1. Not exactly a fist pump spot.

You can see who joined the fray in the tweet below.

Later, there was more discussion on the possibility of buying all the combinations possible to guarantee a jackpot win. An investment of almost $585 million.

The question is, how many people would you end up sharing the expected $1.9 billion with? Another two claimants still make it a profitable outcome but three and it’s a big loss.

Of course, there’s always the possibility that nobody wins this run and the jackpot increases. The last hit was on August 3, 2022, for a massive win of $206.9 million by a Pennsylvania Lottery retail customer.

At the time of writing, the draw was delayed over extra time needed to complete security protocols across 48 different states.

When the required security protocols are complete, the drawing will be performed under the supervision of lottery security officials and independent auditors. Winning numbers will be posted as soon as they are available. Thank you for your patience.”

 

With $4,500 of his own money in the draw, Shaun Deeb stands to win the biggest share of $95,000,000, making him a candidate for richest professional poker player on the planet.
