The winning numbers to the sixth largest Powerball jackpot in U.S. lottery history will be announced tonight.

When it comes to lottery valley residents don’t mind waiting in line. People lined up for a chance to win the 400 million dollar jackpot.

Powerball fever continues to take hold across 43 states as well as Washington, D.C, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

It seems like most people are willing to trade in there 2 dollars for a chance to win big. And as much as 400 million sounds impressive.

The record may easily be broken as early as next month. Each drawing without a winner rolls the jackpot over and makes it more lucrative.

If no one strikes tonight, the jackpot only gets bigger which will only draw more buyers. We have seen four times the amount of people we normally see come in.

The odds of winning are slim, according to officials, you have a 1 in 175 million chance of winning and those odds don’t really change if you buy more tickets.

The biggest winner in Powerball history took home $590 million before taxes in a drawing last may.

If you are unsure of what you would do with your millions. If you won financial experts say the best thing to do is to set up annuities and long term trust would be the best way to go about it.
