PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — You have another chance to strike it rich! The Powerball drawing is Saturday night.
The jackpot is up to $750 million. That’s the third-largest jackpot in Powerball history and the fourth-largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history.
Akhil Reddy at a 7-Eleven in Center City barely has people coming into play the Powerball when a couple days ago he had a non-stop line of the Mega Millions.
“I think we all got a little disappointed when we didn’t win the Mega Millions,” said Reddy.
Doug Hauser in Montgomery County, thinks maybe there’s less hype around the Powerball jackpot because of that disappointment.
For him, $750 million is still worth a few dollars and taking a chance.
“The excitement is still there every time. It’s always fun,” said Hauser.
“I feel like a lot more people should be playing for $750 million. It’s still a lot of money,” said Jake Hill of Collegeville.
Just days ago, a jackpot-winning Mega Millions ticket was sold in South Carolina.
That ticket was worth $1.5 billion. A pizza shop in Center City honored losing tickets with a free slice in exchange for losing tickets as a consolation.
