What would you do with $400 million?

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) – Tonight's Powerball Jackpot is estimated at $400 million, the fourth largest in Powerball history.

"It's been wild," said Holiday Store employee Blake Nunn. "We've had more people than we ever had."

Several customers stopped by The Holiday Store in Paragould to test their luck. All of them, crossing their fingers and hoping to be tonight's big winner.

"I'd pay off my debts," said customer Johnny Simons. "I'd also buy me a decent vehicle and buy me a farm somewhere."

For one customer, his idea of winning the Powerball involved sharing the wealth.

"I've been to three colleges, so I'd donate quite a bit of money to each of the colleges I attended," said customer Thom Fielder.

However, with an estimated cash value at $223.6 million, there's always enough left over to spend on yourself.

"I would probably start a theatre," said Fielder. "I act and direct in the area, and I teach theatre at Black Rock Technical College and at ASU Paragould, so I might build a dinner theatre here in Paragould!"
