Powerball reaches record high|
The Powerball jackpot is expected to hit its highest-ever record of 425-million dollars for this Wednesday night's drawing. Nebraska Lottery officials expect very brisk sales this week. Lottery spokesman Terry Rich says a prize this big will lure in people who've never-before spent a buck on a Powerball ticket. If there's no big winner on Wednesday night and we go a few more weeks along this path, it's possible to see the prize reach and exceed a billion dollars. Yes, that's billion with a "B." This week's projected jackpot buries the previous record of 365-million which was won in February of 2006 by a group of eight workers at a Lincoln, Nebraska, meatpacking plant.
