Powerball fever is sweeping the nation as tomorrow night's jackpot grows to more than a half-billion-dollars. Iowa Lottery's Mary Neubauer says players shouldn't get too crazy.
She says the jackpots keep growing the astronomical levels due to a couple of changes in the game. Powerball tickets are now two-dollars instead of one-dollar, and the game is being played in more states than ever before.
Tomorrow night's Powerball jackpot is now up to 600-million-dollars. That would be the second-largest in U.S. history. The biggest still belongs to the Mega Millions, which paid out 656-million last year. That jackpot was split by three tickets in Kansas, Illinois and Maryland.
