It's the question that will be on the minds of millions Wednesday night, do they have the winning ticket to the record breaking Powerball jackpot?
6News spoke with a legal expert who has some suggestions about the best way to protect your self while playing for the $500 Million dollar prize.
It's a record setting number, with the Powerball jackpot at $500 Million, Nicholas DeLeon says his lottery pool at work also hit an all time high.
"Usually it's three, but because it's so high, we have other people that want to jump in," said Lansing resident Nicholas DeLeon.
40 in total want to take part in the potential life changing experience and DeLeon says he is just playing the odds.
"You get better chances, more people and I like to share the wealth, you can't be greedy all on your own."
But with more people, Attorney Steven Feigelson says there is more risk.
"You're going to have problems with how the split is going to be broken down, whose going to buy the tickets, potentially what numbers to pick and how many people do you include," said Attorney Steven Feigelson.
Once that's decided, Feigelson says the best play is to get something in writing.
"If you have a written document saying everyone is going to pay this much money per week, this much money to buy them, these are the numbers and if we win this the percentage payout."
Feigelson says the safest bet though is to have that document and a copy of your ticket notarized by a third party.
"If there was an agreement and it's clearly spelled out and it was legally binding, I don't see someone else having a challenge," DeLeon said.
He says he is relying on trust and a gentleman's agreement, saying he is willing to take his chances.
The Powerball jackpot is the largest in history with the second biggest coming in 2006 at $365 Million.
