$325 Million Up For Grabs In Powerball Jackpot

DETROIT (WWJ) - Saturday night's Powerball jackpot is the fourth largest in history at $325 millions.

Suzie Adams said that she'd make a lot of people happy if she won. She said she'd pay off her house and the houses of others.

But what are her chances of winning? "I have no idea," she said. "But you can't win if you don't play."

Bill Buckner of Southfield bought some tickets at a 7-11 on 11 Mile Road and told WWJ's Beth Fisher how he'd spend those millions:

"Pay bills, give the family some ... take a little vacation," said Buckner. "... probably, Costa Rica."

Melissa Randolph of Detroit plays in a lottery pool at work  and knows how she'd use the money.

"I would first off pay off all my debt, I'd help my family, and finish school" said Randoph.

WWJ will have those winning Powerball numbers for you after 11 tonight.
