Powerball Jackpot At $325 Million Tonight
I know a number of people who won’t play the lottery unless there is a jackpot of, say, $100 million or so. I guess $80 or $90 million wouldn’t be enough. So those folks will be heading to their local lottery outlet to buy a ticket or two or 10 as the Powerball jackpot has risen to $325 million. What do the mega jackpot winners do with their winnings?
Last March Louisa White of Rohode Island won $336 million with Powerball.
She hired attorneys and formed a trust that would benefit her family, dubbing it Rainbow Sherbert Trust–after the frozen treat she bought while purchasing the winning ticket.
Here is what some other big winners did.
Erica Greene of Georgia $331 million–She planned to have someone else call the financial shots for her. ”I’ve studied up on statistics and I am going to have someone handle the money for me,” Greene said. “I’ll make my money work for me instead of blowing it all
