I won the big one!
The big one, eh? OK, so how much exactly is the big one for Philip? Well, he won $682,144.
$682,144? Pfft, that's nooooothing... Peanuts!
Sorry, pardon me... Any other day, $682,144 would be a nice prize. But today... Today everybody's dreaming about the $500 million Powerball jackpot. It's hard to get excited about a few hundred thousand dollars when there's $500 million up for grabs tonight.
Hey, by the way, if nobody wins tonight's Powerball jackpot, I'm estimating an $800 million plus jackpot for Saturday. Now that would be insane!
But anyway, back to our big winner of the day - Philip Solanges... $682,144 really is an awesome prize (Even if you'd rather win $500 million). With the win, Philip plans to buy his wife a new car, pay off his mortgage, and invest the rest. Hey, if he buys a Powerball ticket tonight and wins the big one, he can buy cars for his whole neighborhood, pay off all of their mortgages, and still have about $490 million left over to play with.
Postscript: Good luck on the Powerball draw tonight. I hope you win (I also hope I win!).
