Powerball Jackpot at $400 Million and Expected to Climb
Just in case you don't play the lottery regularly and weren't aware, there was no winner in Saturday night's Powerball drawing, which means the jackpot is at $400 million and climbing.
If you're headed to the store today or tomorrow, get ready for another round of lottery-mania. The Powerball jackpot is now up to $400 million and officials think that number will climb even higher as ticket sales surge.
If you were to win the new jackpot and opt for the lump sum, you'd walk away with $227 million. Not too shabby, huh? The next drawing for the $400 million dollar jackpot is Wednesday
Do you ever think about what you'd do if you became a millionaire overnight? While I sometimes think about it, it's almost hard for me to wrap my head around the idea. Things like that don't happen in real life. I'd definitely consult a financial adviser before doing anything, but I think I'd probably continue to live my life simply so that I could stretch the money out. It'd be so nice to not have to life paycheck to paycheck and worry about unexpected bills, wouldn't it?
What would you do if you won $227 million dollars?
