With the Powerball jackpot north of $1 billion, it’s hard not to imagine what you could do with that kind of money.

Yes, the odds of matching all five numbers and the Powerball are 1 in 292 million. You’re more likely to be struck by lightning — while drowning.

But what could you actually buy with that kind of cash?

Well, for starters, let’s take a look at the most expensive home currently for sale in North Carolina.

This mega-mansion at 24 Browntown Road in Biltmore Forest, south of Asheville, can be yours for $10,750,000. That won’t even hardly put a dent in your winnings!

According to Beverly-Hanks & Associates, Realtors, the five-bedroom, seven-bath home features a complete Roman spa, entertainment area with card room, kitchen, pool, wine tasting room and theater.

The home also features four full kitchens and four garages.

In those garages, you can park a whole fleet of these:

The Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita ranks No. 1 on Digital Trends’ 2015 list of the most expensive cars in the world. One of these will set you back $4,800,000.

The supercar features a 4.8-liter, dual-supercharged V8 with a total output of 1,004 horsepower.

But maybe cars aren’t your thing. That’s OK, you could always invest in a small armada of superyachts.

A 100-meter-long superyacht that can cruise at 25 knots and has an onboard staff of 50 costs approximately $275 million on average, according to USA Today.

With the Powerball jackpot secured, you could purchase four of these floating palaces and still have a little money left over.

No matter what you’d spend the winnings on, you can catch the next drawing at 10:59 p.m. ET Wednesday on FOX8, your exclusive home of the NC Education Lottery.
