The Powerball jackpot has reached $730 million. Here's my attempt and putting that ridiculous number into perspective: For $730 million you can buy seven Playboy Mansions and a 1954 Mercedes Benz W196R Formula 1 single-seater racing car. For $730 million you can wake up every day to Mariah Carey singing for two years. For $730 million you can buy all ten of the most expensive private islands in the world.

Actually that's still too rich people of a perspective. More practically, for $730 million you can send every student at Meridian High School and Eagle High School to Harvard for four years. For $730 million you can buy every homeless person in Idaho a Meridian home. For $730 million you can send every single nurse in Idaho for the most expensive dinner offered at Barbacoa once a week for a year (and they'd deserve it.)

No matter which way you look at it $730 million is an insane amount for any one person to acquire (unless you ask Jeff Bezos or Elon Musk, who consider that a Tuesday morning or something). But the point is that you have a chance to win it with the Idaho Powerball, all you have to do is purchase a ticket!

Ooooor you can listen to Moug & Angie Mornings from 6am-10am, Monday (1/18) through Wednesday (1/20) where we'll be giving away Powerball tickets so you don't have to spend the money yourself. We'll have 5 chances each morning for you to get your hands on one of these lucky* little lotto tickets. Be sure to tune in!

*this is a subjective term and does not guarantee a winning ticket.
