Powerball Jackpot

500-million dollars. That’s Wednesday night’s estimated amount of cash the winner of the Powerball Jackpot will receive if they match all 6 numbers on their ticket. Kevin Nidthammer, Chattanooga said, "I’m planning on going and buying a ticket today." Powerball gives players a chance to win one of nine different cash prizes including the multimillion-dollar jackpot. If the winner takes the cash option upfront, they will walk away with more than 337-million dollars. Cori White, Chattanooga said, "The way I was brought up and stuff and being like a single parent household that’s a lot of money. I would probably pass out or something."

People around Chattanooga are dreaming about what they would do with that amount of money. Nidthammer said, "I would probably buy a new car. Maybe a house. And then I would probably buy anything for my family and friends. Things that they want to try give back anyway I could." Braxton Colvin, Chattanooga said, "I would put myself through school so I wouldn’t have to take out anymore loans. And then I would probably help my parents pay bills." Carlie Shelton, Chattanooga said, "Give some to my parents to pay off their house and car and everything because they have supported me."

Your odds of winning are 1 in more than 175-million, but it only takes one ticket. Nidthammer said, "The way I look at it is if I buy a ticket I probably won’t win, but if I don’t buy a ticket I definitely won’t win." Wednesday night’s drawing is the 3rd largest Powerball Jackpot drawing in history.
