The Powerball jackpot is up to about $425 million, and you've probably daydreamed about what you could do with money like that.
It turns out it's hard to spend $425 million, but it undoubtedly would be a nice problem to have.
Here are just a few things you could buy with your winnings.
You could buy a beach mansion in southern California, currently listed at $75 million.
How about a car? The Bugatti is the most expensive street legal car on the market, reaches 267 mph and goes from zero to 60 in 2 1/2 seconds. That will set you back about $2.5 million.
If cars and mansions aren't your thing, why not think outside the box and finance your own silver screen blockbuster?
The Hangover had a production cost of just $35 million with a worldwide gross of $467 million.
If you're a Las Vegas sports fan, you could buy the minor league baseball team the 51's and build them a badly needed new stadium for $55 million. Or, if you'd rather go pro, you could quickly end the pursuit of an arena and fund an NBA or NHL facility for about $425 million. Hope it works, because that's all your money.
Of course, with your new riches you'll need an entourage. You could steal away former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman's showgirls for a mere $100,000 a year apiece.
You don't want to be caught drinking Boone's Farm anymore. How about a bottle of Louis XIII cognac for $65,000?
If you need a place to stay on the Las Vegas Strip, how about a luxurious skyloft at the MGM Grand? You'll enjoy Strip views, a Jacuzzi on the balcony and 5,000 feet of space for just $8,000 a night.
Not to be a downer, but the chances of winning Powerball are about one in 175 million. The cash option would pay you roughly $278 million, $192 million after taxes.
If no one wins this Powerball, the jackpot could set a new American record.
