What would you do with more than half billion dollars? Tonight's jackpot of $550 million is the largest in Powerball history.

Lottery experts say there is about a sixty percent chance someone will win tonight and that number could rise if there is a flurry of last minute ticket buyers picking unique numbers.

At World Wide News in downtown Rochester, we found a few people singing the Steve Miller Band hit song "Take The Money And Run."

John Sebaste of Gates said, "Well, I'd probably give a lot of it away to charity and I would spend a lot of it too."

Jim Reyes of Rochester said, "Pay my dues, I have a lot of dues I have to pay, maybe find that perfect wife I've been looking for to spend it with and maybe take a trip."

Clifton Manhertz of Rochester said, "I have seven grand kids, they will have for school and take the rest to Jamaica."

Lottery experts say the odds of duplicate tickets increase as ticket sales do.
