Powerball ticket sales have ended, here's what a lucky player could do with $1.9 billion.
Ticket sales for the $1.9 billion jackpot have ended as of 9:45 p.m. tonight.
As ticket sales end for tonight's drawing, the Michigan lottery has reported that nearly eight million tickets have been sold tonight. The average ticket sales at stores statewide are 412,000 tickets per hour.
Here are what fun and great things you could do with $1.9 billion:
Buy a Private Island
If you're considering some R&R, then winning the Powerball could be your ticket to getting that. A private island could be the ultimate getaway from the world. Owning your own island is more than just real estate, it's a lifestyle!

Consider giving back to the community
If you're big on giving back to the community, this could be the perfect opportunity for you! Whether it's giving back to your favorite charities or supporting a cause, you would be doing the world wonders if you did just that.
With $1.9 billion, that would be enough to feed everyone in the world, providing support for those who may not have it. Even better, with the holidays coming up, it would be enough turkeys for everyone in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois.

Travel the world
If you've always wanted to see the sights of the world, this could be your ticket to do that.
Winning the lottery would cover any expenses in any country in the world. I know if I won, that would be the first thing on my bucket list. I always wanted to see the sights of Italy and Canada.
You could be the first to travel the world in 80 days if you're lucky.
Buy a home (or two)
If you're looking for a new home (or two), the jackpot may cover the cost of that and then some. Now, I would advise that you don't pick a very expensive house, as this could accumulate a lot more costs than a normal house. That's just my opinion.
The Powerball jackpot could also help provide much-needed housing for your community. I can't tell you how many people I see homeless coming from work on most days of the week. $1.9 billion could solve that problem.
If you win, I'd suggest you start your new home search!
Those are just some of the things you could do with your lottery winnings. Winning numbers can be found here. Good luck everyone!
