Lottery Jackpots rise to near record highs

Someone in Louisville won $50,000 in Wednesday's Powerball drawing

Those unclaimed prizes range from $31 million for a ticket purchased in Queens, New York in August of 2006, to $77 million for a winning ticket purchased in Georgia in June 2011.

There was a catch, of course.

There have even been five jackpot winners who have failed to claim their prizes in the last 16 years, according to the lottery data that's available.

Folks have had shots at both big multi-state lotteries but so far no one has hit a jackpot yet. Friday, January 5th, there are back to back lottery jackpots that are in the hundreds of millions of dollars - and that fever is burning twice as hot. Powerball odds are one-in-about 292 million. "Can you really spend that much money?" So what does one do with $400 million? "Everything is by chance these days so, you gotta be in it to win it", says Lynn. "They've never both been this high at the same time". On Wednesday, no one won the Powerball jackpot worth an estimated $460 million.

Fifteen million dollars is a manageable amount.

"I would use that money to give back". I could help some friends and then enjoy the rest of the $10 million or so I would take home after taxes. The biggest Mega Millions jackpot was in 2012, when three winners split $656 million. Don't make it too hard for somebody to win.

Saturday's Powerball jackpot is the eighth largest lottery prize ever.

The Powerball drawing is up to $570 million with a cash payout of almost $359 million.

I don't play Powerball because there are too many numbers and my chances of winning are too slim.

"I got the hope and belief in Jesus, so I know I got to have the winning ticket for tonight", says Vincent Sanders.

"This is my first time playing either one, so I'm having fun", Halliburton said. Players now pick numbers from 1 to 70 and a Mega number between 1 and 25.
