WHAT WOULD YOU EVEN DO WITH THAT MUCH MONEY!

If you had a billion dollars what would you do with it? Well that is one question a lucky person in the US is asking themselves right now. 

Just over an hour ago Powerball in the USA confirmed that there has been at least one winner in the record breaking draw. When we say record breaking we bloody mean it. The jackpot reached 2.5 billion dollars (Australian.)

The winning ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven in Chino Hills California and an employee at the store told the LA Times, “really happy to have sold the top prize. It’s very good news, people having been going crazy paying up to $400 for a Powerball ticket.”

The winning numbers were 4, 8, 18, 27, 34, PB 10. The lucky numbers one person will be forever thanking. 

The odds of winning the Powerball were less than one in 292.2 million but people were still disappointed with their losing outcome.
