It keeps growing and growing and growing.  How can you not play?

The record Powerball jackpot is now even  bigger.

The  jackpot for Wednesday's drawing is now up to $500 million.  Not surprising since people around the country are buying them up as if they were Twinkies going away forever.

With record jackpots, people who usually  don't play, pony up and also group purchases from work pools  increase.

The jackpot is the largest ever for the  Powerball game and the second largest lottery jackpot of all time, eclipsed only  by the $656 million Mega Millions record set in March.

On Wednesday at 7am, Laura Daniels will be giving away free tickets all hour.  We'd love for you to win!  Just rememeber where you got the winning ticket from :)
