TELL US: What Would You Do With the $500 Million Powerball Jackpot?

As no one has won Powerball for 16 consecutive tries, the estimated jackpot for Wednesday drawing is $500 million. Tell us in the comments what you would do if you won.

For the last two months, no one has been lucky enough to win the Powerball lottery.

Lottery officials now estimate Wednesday's jackpot at $500 milion, the largest in Powerball history.

Powerball is pulled Wednesdays and Fridays. The Powerball lottery is played in 42 states, including Massachusetts and all six New England states.

According to Powerball, the odds of winning the jackpot is 1 in 175 million. The odds of getting all 5 numbers and not the Powerball, earning $1 million, is 1 in 5 million.

The chance that lightning will strike again in Newport is slim, since 81-year-old Louise White won the $366 million Powerball jackpot last March, but it's still fun to dream. What would you if you had the winning ticket?

1. Just stop going to work. No two week notice, not even a two minute notice. They would never see or hear from me again. 2. Pay off the house and all loans. 3. Start traveling. First stop: Caribbean. WOO HOO!

I would devote myself to finding world peace and prosperity for mankind. No actually I would just go crazy and would probably not remember my name in six months.

Of course you donate some, pay your bills, buy a new big house, travel..... but then you get as much of it as you can in cash, take it home, spread it all over the floor, and ROLL IN IT!!!! Scream, laugh, GO NUTS !!!! ;)
