Powerball reaches $600 million; drawing on Channel 7 at 10:00 p.m.

Posted: Updated:

 

People lined up at gas stations and convenience stores in Arkansas and around the country Saturday for their chance at striking it rich.

Lottery officials said the majority of possible combinations have already been purchased ahead of Saturday night's near-historic $600 million drawing.

The odds of winning the game's largest jackpot remain astronomically high: 1 in 175.2 million.

Since about 80 percent of the possible combinations have been purchased, lottery officials say it's likely the winning ticket could be selected.

The latest jackpot is the world's second largest overall, just behind a $656 million Mega Millions jackpot in March 2012.

The drawing will be shown on Channel 7 at the top of the 10:00 p.m. newscast Saturday night.
