The Powerball jackpot is $325 million tonight. It is the 4th largest prize in the history of the lottery. If someone wins tonight they will take home a whopping $125 million (or thereabout) AFTER taxes.
It begs the question; “What would you do with the winnings?” Many say they will retire, share it with family, go on vacation, start a charity, or go into hiding. But do we really know exactly how it would be spent? That is hard to truly know, since it is more cash than most obtain in a lifetime.
If it happens to be me I would likely do what the majority have on their list…especially the hiding out part. While they say “Money does not bring you happiness”, they also say “The more money the more problems.”
Lottery tickets need to be purchased tonight before 10pm eastern time. Gotta to play to win right? Did you get your ticket? What would you do with all that cash?
P.s. If you happen to win and would like to share…please send some my way!
UPDATE 11/25/12: NO WINNER! NOW UP TO $425 MILLION!
