An estimated $400 million is a far cry from the record-breaking $590 million Powerball Jackpot won earlier this year by a Pasco County resident.
Even so, that’s a pretty sizeable chunk of change. After all is said and done with taxes, a winning Powerball ticket holder from Florida can expect a net payout of about $172,725,000, according to USAMega.com.
The odds of winning on a single ticket purchase is one in 175 million, according to the Huffington Post. But, are those odds discouraging you?
Tell us, what would you do if you won that $400 million jackpot – the third largest in Powerball history?
