Feeling Lucky? Oregon Powerball Jackpot Climbs to 3rd Highest Total Ever!
Win this, and you will have friends and relatives coming out of the woodwork!
The Wednesday night drawing for Powerball will pay out, if somebody has a winning ticket, $485 million dollars!
Should one person win, they can choose one of two options:
1) 30 years of annual payments of $10.8 million dollars, or
2) A lump-sum of $219 million dollars.
Both of these figures obviously don't add up to $485 million, but that's the winner's take after Federal and state taxes are removed. The drawing will be held at 7:59pm Wednesday.
Oregon has had four Powerball winners, who took home $340 million in 2005, $182.7 million in 2007, $38.4 million in 1992, and $33.8 million in 1999.
