This past week, there was so much anticipation around the record-breaking $1.56 billion Powerball jackpot — and someone ultimately won it. Three someones, actually. So to be helpful, we decided to come up with a list of items these lucky people should consider buying with the $187.2 million they'll each get to take home after taxes.
First up is a new place to live. Unfortunately, you won't have enough to purchase the Playboy Mansion, which is on the market for $200 million and comes with live-in resident Hugh Hefner.
But a private island can be purchased. It'll only cost $160 million to buy this 110-acre one off the coast of Thailand.
