Will Someone Win the Powerball Jackpot? - WGEM.com: Quincy News, Weather, Sports, and Radio

People Line up for Powerball Tickets

WEST QUINCY, Mo. (WGEM) -

Wednesday night held the possibility of great wealth for someone in America. Or maybe the Powerball will continue to swell.

The Powerball's prize is an estimated $208 million dollars, after all six numbers went unmatched on Saturday.

The last time someone won the Powerball jackpot was December 26. A person in Florida won $50 million dollars then. The last winning jackpot ticket was for $50 million to a lucky person in Florida on Dec. 26. The jackpot has rolled 10 times since Dec. 29.

At Ayerco in West Quincy, store workers said they sold about 200 tickets before the big draw. And players had some big ideas on what they would do with that money. 

"First off, put new kitchen cabinets in our kitchen, pay off some bills and probably buy a different camper because we camp in the springtime," said Wilma Walker.

The winner would choose between having the $208 million prize paid over 29 years or taking the cash option of about $130 million.
