The powerball jackpot is up to $400 million dollars. The cash value of a winning ticket is about $228 million.

The chance of winning is not that great, but we can all dream. If you match all five white balls and the red Powerball, you win the big prize. You can take your winnings over 29 years or take a lump sum payment. Tickets cost $2 each.  The second prize is a million dollar. You win this by matching the five white balls.

And while we're dreaming, what would be the first thing you buy with the millions? Robert would probably buy an Aston Martin DB9. The pricetag for that James Bond car is just above $200,000. I would probably buy the Audi S8 from Moffett. It costs about $120,000, but is so fine and just happens to be the car featured throughout the "50 Shades of Grey" book.
