What can $550 million buy?
Well for starters, you could build the new $150 million Las Vegas Ballpark in Summerlin twice, and still have some money to spare if you take the cash-value option if you win Wednesday’s Powerball jackpot, which will be worth at least $550 million. That makes Wednesday’s drawing the eighth-largest prize in the history of the multistate game, after no one won Saturday’s jackpot.
The estimated cash value is $335 million.
Swing away and if you’ve got a yen to play, the Primm Valley Lotto Store, located at 31900 Las Vegas Blvd. South, about 45 minutes southwest of the Las Vegas Valley, is the closest place to buy a ticket.
The next closest is the Arizona Last Stop, about 60 miles to the southeast, near mile marker 30 on U.S. Highway 93 in White Hills, Arizona.
