ATLANTA — Feeling lucky? All you have to do is buy a Powerball ticket, and your life could change in an instant.
Tuesday's jackpot stands at $430 million, with a cash value of $273.4 million. You can watch the Powerball drawing TONIGHT on WSB-TV right before the Channel 2 Action News Nightbeat at 11.
So what can you do with $430 million? A lot, apparently. It’s so much money, you may run out of things to buy.
Here’s a list of 7 things you could do with the giant jackpot:
Buy a jumbo jet
You could buy a Boeing 747 to fly you to whatever destination you want, since you’ll have plenty money left over. The wide-body jet costs a measly $378 million, according to Boeing.
Buy a Georgia island
We get it, you just won $430 million and you just want to get away from the world. Buying an island within driving distance would do the trick. You could purchase Little Hawkins Island for about $18 million, and it’s just a four-and-a-half hour drive from Atlanta to the coast. Its seller said it is a “three-acre paradise accessed via your own privately gated, 110-foot concrete bridge set within a prestigious gated island community.”
Love NASCAR? Buy the best team
The most valued NASCAR racing team is Hendricks Motorsports, according to Forbes. And if you win the lottery, you could hang out with Jimmie Johnson all you want, since the team is estimated at $375 million.
Buy Atlanta’s most expensive homes
If you’re wanting to upgrade your pad with your millions, you could buy Atlanta’s most expensive homes and still have money to decorate with. You could buy Atlanta’s top 20 most expensive homes, which add up to around $200 million.
Buy a ticket to space
You can buy an out-of-this-world gift for yourself and a few friends – a trip to space! You can hop on a Russian Soyuz flight to the space station for a measly $74.7 million.
Buy a baseball team
OK, so you may not be able to afford the Atlanta Braves, but you could definitely afford to buy some minor league teams. According to Forbes, the most expensive minor league team is the Sacramento River Cats, which is valued at $49 million.
If you want to go the charitable route, you could be a hero to Georgia’s children. You could buy a Kindle E-reader or a Chromebook laptop for every single one of the 1,756,553 public school students in Georgia.
