No one won the $900 Million U.S. Powerball lottery last night, so on Wednesday, the jackpot will be $1.3 Billion (U.S.). $1 Billion equals 1000x $1million. Add 40% exchange if converted into Canadian dollars, then subtract 30% U.S. taxes for non-resident winners and you have what a Canadian would pocket if he/she scores the big win. The biggest lottery jackpot in history.
Who isn’t going to buy a ticket, in person or online? What would you do if you won that much money?
