The Powerball pot growing to $550 million dollars and folks in Northwest Arkansas are hoping to get their mittens on some moolah.
Five hundred and fifty million dollars, that's half a billion bucks. But what does that really mean?
If you won the jackpot, you could buy about 150 million gallons gas. But, the winnings wouldn't help our national debt. Nope, you'd have to hit the jackpot about 32,000 times to fix our fiscal problems.
The folks we talked to on Wednesday said they don't want to give their green to the government. One woman said she would do missionary work with her winnings. A man we spoke with said he wanted to open his own skate park.
Whoever wins the jackpot on Wednesday, is sure to have one heck of a happy holiday.
