They Did Round Up From The ’95 Cents’, I Know That

Powerball winning numbers and the current estimated jackpot of $301 Million.
I also wonder if they rounded up that ’57’ in the last regular number. I was only six digits off, anyway.

So, this estimated Powerball payoff. Is it really just a touch over three hundred million dollars, or did they round it up because $298 million would look like a dramatically chintzier prize?

    1. Oh, I know; if I had $298 million I wouldn’t begrudge the multi-state lottery commission the extra $3. But I admit I’m a heavy tipper. I just want to know the kinds of errors they expect when they estimate stuff is all.
