Powerball Coming to California as Soon as April

What would you have done with the prize money?

Powerball is coming to California. Retailers could start selling tickets as soon as April.

OK, so it's a little anti-climactic that California missed last Friday's Powerball drawing, but isn't it fun to dream about winning the nearly $580 million jackpot?

CNN reported Wednesday night that tickets containing the winning numbers—5, 23, 16, 22, 29 and the Powerball 6—were sold in nearby Arizona and in Missouri.

According to the Los Angeles Times, state residents drove or flew to one of the other 42 participating states to snatch up a potential winning ticket. Maybe next time it climbs high, the newspaper reported California residents may not have to travel far since the state lottery commission is expected to adopt regulations to join Powerball. 

To play, you must pick five unique numbers from 1 through 59, and a Powerball number from 1 through 35. The jackpot increases by $10 million if no one wins during a drawing; in this case, no one had won since Oct. 6.

So tell us, what would you have done with $580 million? Would you have given any to charity? Would you go on a month-long vacation? Would you have quit your job, bought a Ferrari and driven into the sunset?

Our only popular tax on the poor and the uninformed. Chance that someone will win: 100%. Chance that YOU will win: The same as betting that a ping pong ball dropped from 1000 feet will hit one specific person seated in about 400 Rose Bowls.
