Just curious as to how you all would roll after a major JP win. I would go with buying a modest house, as to blend in, not stand out and actually be "The Millionaire Next Door".

    I have lived in an apartment building or rented an apartment in a multifamily house all of my life. If I won a sizable amount, I would definitely buy my own house. The size of the house would depend on the jackpot amount, but it would be mine!

    I don't need big and fancy.... will maybe not fancy, but big would be nice.

          Current home I live in that I purchased for $135,000.

          I only owe $45,000 on it so I'd just pay it off and stay put.

            I would buy a house as my vote if I win a jackpot.

            I hope that one $2 ticket is the only one that matches all 5 numbers plus the Powerball to win the largest Powerball Jackpot in United States history of over $2 Billion Dollars!

                Why didn't you knock?  I would have taken the Sara Lee out of the freezer and invited you in.  Approve

                  I'm feeling a jackpot win coming my way!

                  Let's just stay outside.  Looks like most of the furniture is out here anyway.  And probably fewer flies, too.  Yes Nod

                    I'd buy a penthouse condo in a hotel. The benefits of home ownership with the amenities of a hotel too.

                      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                          Who, oh who, is going to look for a jackpot winner in either one?
