Millions in the tri-state area anticipate $325 Powerball drawing

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM -

Tonight's Powerball jackpot is worth at least $325 million and had millions in the tri-state purchasing tickets. 

To win the jackpot, you have to match all five regular numbers, plus the Powerball.

So what would you do if you won? 

"I would hide the money, said one Powerball ticket buyer. "You hear so many stories about people losing money then spend the rest of the time remembering where I hid it."

Another would-be winner said, "I would disappear, take care of my kids and I would definitely disappear." 

In the spirit of the holidays and Sandy's aftermath, charity is high on the list. 

"A lot now would go to Hurricane Sandy victims," said one Powerball hopeful. "Everybody that lost everything I'd be very generous to all of them – a lot of people less fortunate right now." 

The winning numbers will be drawn at 10:59 p.m.
