Powerball Jackpot Hits 340 Million
It seems like everyone has powerball fever as we get closer to the big drawing for 340-million dollars. If there's a winner tonight, the jackpot will be paid out in thirty installments… But if the winner chooses one lump sum, they'll get 164-million dollars. The jackpot has been growing since mid-August and twenty pots have passed without a winning ticket. The odds of winning are only about one in 146-million. Nebraska Lottery officials tell us the deadline for buying a ticket is 8:30 tonight. The drawing is set for ten o'clock.
