What Would You Do With The Powerball Jackpot?

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

What would you do with $325 million? Get the lucky Powerball ticket and $213 million is yours after taxes.  FOX29 went across the Delaware Valley to see how people would spend all that dough.

"(I'd) buy my children a house, set my grandchildren up with their education, pay off some bills and just live easy," said Cookie Miller. 

We ran into her buying tickets at the Lukoil gas station on City Line Avenue between Philadelphia and Bala Cynwyd. 

Vickie Ramos of Northeast Philadelphia talked with FOX29 while buying tickets at a Wawa store there.

"Help the needy, help the kids and get something for my life," she said, if she were to win.

The drawing is scheduled for Saturday night.  It is the fourth largest jackpot in Powerball's history.
