Powerball jackpot: How would you spend $478 million?

The Powerball weekend jackpot has climbed to $478 million.

- Powerball players will have a shot at the nation's eighth-largest lottery jackpot this weekend, but they'll face long odds that have resulted in nearly three months without a winner.

Anyone who matches all five balls and red Powerball on Saturday night could win a $478 million annuity paid over 29 years or opt for a $330.6 million cash prize.

No one has matched all the numbers since the May 7 drawing.

This jackpot is less than a third of the record $1.6 billion Powerball won in January, but is the fifth-largest in the game's history.

FOX 2's Hannah Saunders asked some local Metro Detroiters how they'd spend the money.
