Powerball Fever

By  | 

Their chances are a lot less than one-in-a-million, but Coloradans are lining up early this morning anyway to take even a small chance at becoming a multi-millionaire.

The estimated annuitized jackpot for tonight's Powerball drawing is $300 million, leading a lot of people who usually don't play to put down a few dollars on tonight's game.

Nobody's cracked the Powerball jackpot since an Iowa family hit all six numbers drawn December 14th.

Tonight's prize is the third largest jackpot in Powerball history.

Colorado Lottery director Peggy Gordon is reminding both regular and once-in-awhile players to be "responsible" when it comes to big-money drawings like tonight's.
