Take a moment and think about what you’d do if someone dropped a cool $270,500,000.00 cash in your lap.
Go ahead, we’ll wait…
That’s approximately what you’d receive if you drop $2 on a Powerball ticket, pick the winning numbers for Saturday’s drawing, and choose the cash option for the $390 million total prize.

Saturday’s jackpot actually falls short of the $429.6 million Powerball prize that hit back on May 7.
In January, the Powerball soared to a record $1.586 billion. Winners from California, Florida, and Tennessee shared that fortune.
