TELL US: What Would You Do if You Won 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 to win the Powerball lottery.

So Wednesday's estimated jackpot is $500 million, and likely to go even higher as a buying frenzy has begun.

At $500 million, it would be the largest jackpot 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.
