What Would You Do With $550 Million?

Powerball has raised the jackpot for today's drawing to $550 million -- the second largest in history.

The drawing for the largest Powerball jackpot in history is tonight, Nov. 28. Will you be running out to your favorite convenience store today to buy a ticket?

Powerball raised the jackpot to $550 million today after some frenzied buying since last Saturday's drawing resulted in no jackpot winner. But, really, is it worth it? What are your chances of actually winning?

The odds of one ticket winning the half-a-billion dollar jackpot are estimated to be 1 in 175 million. Roll those odds around on your tongue for a while before you rush out to purchase a $2 ticket or two.

You’ll have to excuse me now. I’m going out to buy a Powerball ticket. Will you be joining me in line? And if you did win, how would you spend some of the money? Use the comment box below.
