Powerball Jackpot up to $800,000,000
Once again the lottery is offering a prize that is unimaginable. The current Powerball Lottery (set to be drawn Saturday October 29th) is conservatively estimated to top $800,000,000 dollars. That is correct, seven zeros in that number. Some analysts think it may even top $1,000,000,000.
The tickets cost $3 each or $4 if you add the Double Play option. Tickets are sold all over the United States and in almost any grocery or convenience store in Montana. So my question to you is: Will you buy a ticket or tickets, how much will you spend on lottery and what would you do if you won?
The payout for an $800,000,000 lottery in Montana would be an estimated $337,208,000 according to Lottery Critic that has provide us with this Lottery Calculator.
I want to hear what you would do with the money. I would do the following:
- Payoff my bills and my immediate families bills
- Set up trusts for my kids so they can be financially secure
- Invest some of it
- Upgrade my furniture, vehicles, etc.
- Buy a few luxuries
- Oh and, put all of my new things on my new 10,000 acre Ranch
I would then take the $250 I have left a buy two tanks of gas since my new vehicles and toys will need that to run. It is hard to fathom, but a person can dream right!
Of course all of this goes with the caution to NOT gamble what you can’t afford. The odds of winning the Powerball Jackpot is just under 1 in 300,000,000. Kind of long odds if you ask me.
Good luck and if you win, give me a call.
