MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The odds are against you. Big Time. But that won’t stop millions of people from taking a chance Saturday night with dollar signs in their eyes, as the multi-state Powerball lottery game’s jackpot breaks the $200 million mark.
This is the largest jackpot since the rules were changes to make it easier to win, in return for a doubling of the ticket price. However, the odds are still astronomical, a fact that won’t stop people from trying.
The jackpot reached $200 million only 4 times in 2011, and there hasn’t been a jackpot winner since January 15th.
The jackpot drawing is Saturday night.
