This morning as you sit and ponder your existence over a cup of coffee you might as well dream a little bit. There was no big winner in Saturday's Powerball drawing so that means your chance to get very wealthy very quickly could happen as early as Wednesday.

How would your life change with a sudden surge in your cash flow? Would you quit your job? Would you travel the world? Would you keep your winnings as quiet as possible and hope nobody found out? I would probably opt for the latter. Some of the horror stories former lottery winners have told might make you rethink that whole dream of winning big.

If you're still on board with winning the Powerball you could be looking at a payout well in excess of $400 million dollars. If you took the cash you could be looking at a payout of more than a quarter of a billion dollars. We won't know just how high the jackpot will go until Wednesday.
