The Powerball lottery is up to 550 million dollars, over a half a billion. That's a whole lot of zeros. The drawing for the second biggest pot in Powerball history happens tonight.
The cash option, before taxes, would end up being 360 million dollars and some change. If the tax burden, local and federal, ended up being 50% that would still be a bit over $180 million.
They say that money can't buy happiness, but for $180M I think you could probably rent it for a while.
