Powerball Jackpot at $173 Million
Ever dreamed about quitting your job and buying a beachfront home in Hawaii or Florida or Fiji? Or all of the above? Tomorrow night's (Wednesday) Powerball jackpot is at 173 million dollars. If you take a one-time payout, that still comes to 105 million bucks before taxes. After taxes, you'll be left with slightly more than half of that. Guess you might have to keep working! Ha!
In Powerball, you need to match five numbers and the Powerball number to win the jackpot. Tickets are a buck for each play. I've invested my dollar. If I don't show up for work Thursday, look for a postcard from me from a really nice beach!
