5 Things The Ark-La-Tex Would Do If They Won The Powerball
The white Powerball numbers were 17-19-39-43-68. The Red Powerball Number was 13. A total of 10 tickets matched all 5 white numbers and won $1 million. But no one had the lucky number 13, so there was no winner of Saturday's Powerball jackpot of $541 million.
The new jackpot for the next drawing on Wednesday will be worth $650 million with a cash option of $411.7 million. That's the 3rd largest jackpot in U.S. history, if anyone's counting. And who isn't?
Recently we did a Facebook poll asking listeners what they would do if they won the Powerball. Here are the Top 5 responses:
Exactly what types of property would be purchased ranged from a house for extended family to a secluded fortress.
Military coups, earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes and monsoons notwithstanding, many people would take their money and run to the tropics.
Uh, right. Just for the record--there were no women who gave this response, and we have questions about the men.
A couple of respondents would use their winnings in an effort to end all hate and spread goodness around the world.
We had to include this on the list, because it's just too silly. Can you tell that a lot of guys answered our poll?
