$1.5 billion. That's the current amount of Wednesday night's Poweball jackpot, the largest in history.
KGVO News spoke with a representative at the Fast Trip convenience store who said there had been a steady stream of customers coming in for Powerball tickets.
If you were to tell me that I won the Powerball Jackpot, the first item I would foresee purchasing would be a house. Then the usual suspects involved in a million dollar shopping spree, i.e. jet skis, cars, helicopters, airplanes, boats and even strip clubs. But with $550 million in the jackpot, all of those items wouldn't even make a dent in my cash wad. So what else would I buy with the money?
