Powerball Jackpot up to $325 million

MYFOXNY.COM -

On this Black Friday think of all the holiday gifts you could buy if you won $325 million! 

$325 million is how much Saturday night's Powerball Jackpot is worth and that has a lot of people in the area dreaming about big bucks!    

Since January the price of the Powerball has doubled to two bucks and while ticket sales have decreased, the jackpots have gotten bigger -- you have a chance to win the 4th biggest one ever tomorrow night. 

The bright red numbers could put you in the black and, in a big way, the Powerball Jackpot is $325 million – so what would you do if you won? 

"I would hide the money, said one Powerball ticket buyer. "You hear so many stories about people losing money then spend the rest of the time remembering where I hid it."

Another would-be winner said, "I would disappear, take care of my kids and I would definitely disappear." 

In the spirit of the holidays and Sandy's aftermath, charity is high on the list. 

"A lot now would go to Hurricane Sandy victims," said one Powerball hopeful. "Everybody that lost everything I'd be very generous to all of them – a lot of people less fortunate right now." 

The people we spoke with are fortunate enough to be working now, but if they win, they said come Monday they might tell their bosses to take their job and shove' em. 

When asked by Fox 5 News what would you tell your boss? "Byeeeee!" said one Powerball ticket buyer. "That's it, definitely tell him bye." 

"I'd say start looking for someone else to replace me," added another. 

Fox 5 News reporter Joel Waldman purchased five tickets and added, "It got me thinking -- now if I win I'm not quitting my job --- I love it too much!"

So if you're a winner of that $325 million dollar Powerball ticket, how much do you actually get to keep -- the answer is $212 million. Hope you're ok with that and good luck everyone!
