INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) -The Powerball jackpot is now up to one point five billion dollars.
And with one point five billion dollars, one could buy nearly anything.
“I wouldn’t get that extravagant, but I’d get a nice home. A nice, comfortable home for sure,” said hopeful jackpot winner Courtenay Crockett.
But let’s pretend you just won the Powerball jackpot. So, since you’re now a billion Baird, let’s get extravagant.
One of the most expensive houses listed on Mibor.com is a mansion near Broad Ripple.
The opulent home features five bedrooms, five bathrooms, four half bathrooms and almost 17,000 square feet.
It could be yours for the bargain price of $6.5 million. With your winnings, you could afford to buy 230 of them, or just buy one and move on to the next purchase.
“(I’d buy) Another nice car, Mercedes,” said Arthur Brisco who has purchased tickets for each record-breaking jackpot.
At Mercedes-Benz of Indianapolis you could buy a souped up, AMG GT S for up to $180,000.
“It’s literally a race car that’s street legal. So if you like to go really fast, where its legal. It’s actually a really good time. But, the Napa leather on the interior, the navigation, backup, it has everything that you could think of from Benz, plus all the racing edition,” said sales and leasing consultant Raymond Yeary.
Now that you have a multi-million dollar, and shiny sports car, it’s time to start thinking about a relaxing vacation.
How about a 116-day cruise where you would visit 5 continents, 25 countries aboard the Silver Seas cruise line? You can purchase that at Travel Leaders in Geist for $175,000 for two people.
“A suite with a balcony and everything. You’re not staying down in the full rooms of the ship. It is luxury,” said Travel Leaders owner Alex Kutin.
Tickets are $2, or you can purchase a $3 Power Play, which boosts your non jackpot winnings.
