51 Things Mainers Would Buy With the Combined $600M Powerball and Mega Millions Jackpots
As of right now, tonight's estimated Powerball jackpot is a whopping $296 million, the highest it's been (according to the official Powerball website) since a massive $632.6 million jackpot was hit by a California man and a Wisconsin couple back on January 5 of this year.
At the same time, tomorrow night's estimated Mega Millions jackpot isn't that far off at $290 million. According to the official Mega Millions website, the last time a big jackpot was hit for that game was also back in January, when a California woman hit for $426 million.
If you combine the two jackpots over the next two nights, an almost-$600 million jackpot is up for grabs if you're lucky enough to hit both. With over a half-billion dollars on the line combined over the next two nights, we were curious what people would purchase in Maine if they hit both jackpots.
Most Mainers would be super generous with their money, while others would repurpose popular Maine landmarks for different uses.
