Robin Huebner Reports: Massive pot, slim odds as millions plunk down their cash for a shot at $500 million
To all would-be multimillionaires: Powerball history could be made tonight. The expected $500 million jackpot, raised on Tuesday from $425 million, far surpasses the previous record Powerball jackpot of $365 million.
And it could go even higher before the numbers are drawn tonight.
"When you have so many people playing, it's common to have multiple jackpot increases before the drawing," said North Dakota Lottery Director Randy Miller.
