How Texans Would Spend Their Powerball Jackpot
The latest Powerball Jackpot winner took home $487 million on July 30 with the winning ticket being sold in New Hampshire. So that means the number has been reset and the next drawing (on Wednesday) will be for a jackpot amount of roughly $67 million. Now, that's not half a billion bucks, but I think we, as Texans, can do a little damage with $67 million, don't you think?
Here's how Texans spend their lottery winnings:
Hitchin' a ride
Even with a $100,00 car you still need to make sure you got a hitch for your towing capabilities.
All of your football merchandise
Whether it's the Texans, Cowboys, Longhorns, Aggies... we'll buy out your merch aisle.
How about just beer...
Yeah. That trailer should account for my first weekend as a millionaire. Maybe.
Ya gotta eat, right?

Some people say quantity over quality. We say why not both.

Texas has so many magical places for your dream wedding. The hardest part would be to pick one. But if you're a Powerball winner, you could arguably have multiple destinations!
Everyone knows you're a winner cuz of your hair

There is actually a mansion in Texas with 46 bedrooms. No lie.
Instead of caviar, I'll just take your biggest burrito and double it, please.

The thing about a Texan winning the lottery is that their tastes will remain the same, except they can share more of it.
