Powerball fever hits the QCA as the jackpot climbs to a staggering estimated $570 million for tonight’s drawing.  

This is the highest Powerball jackpot drawing in almost nine months, and winning a $570 million would be the eighth largest Powerball prize ever won in U.S. history.

No matter the amount, some big lottery winners have spent their big bucks on interesting things. According to Business Insider, here are ways some winners have used their jackpots:

  • Built a water park in honor of their parents
  • Created a trust named after the dessert right before buying their winning ticket
  • Traveled the world and treated 13 family members to a vacation in Florida over the holidays
  • Created a TV show of women’s pro wrestling
  • Bought their dream home, a Porsche, rental properties to rent out, stock market investments and producing a record with their college band
  • Paid for parents’ new house, vacations and cars 
  • Split winnings with family

Powerball drawings are held every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. Tonight’s drawing is at 9:59 p.m. (CT).
