There was no winning ticket in Saturday’s Powerball lottery. Which means, we all still have another chance to score big! How much is the jackpot going to be Monday night (Powerball is held every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday)? It looks to be a record breaking amount of $1.9 BILLION DOLLARS (according to CaLottery.com)!

How Would Yakima Spend $1.9 Billion Dollars?

Over the weekend I asked Yakima that question. If they won the jackpot, how would they spend their winnings? I received many of the traditional answers of “help family” & “pay bills” but it was the answers that went a little beyond that, which I loved.

“A car and a house then an RV so I can travel the world to go around the world and see all kind of new things.” – Michele Conrad

And one listener has realized the power that $1.9 Billion would give him, you can tell with his answer.

“Anything ya want, duh!” – Stephan Madsen
