Arkansans hoping to hit the $400 million Powerball jackpot

Posted: Updated:

LITTLE ROCK (KATV)--It's the 6th largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history! Yes, we're talking about tonight's Powerball. This Powerball drawing carries an estimated $400 million.

If no one matches all the numbers, that jackpot will continue to grow until the next drawing on Saturday.

It was a busy day at the Shell on Broadway Street in Little Rock, many buying up tickets hoping to be a winner.

Each drawing without a winner rolls the jackpot over, and this current jackpot has been climbing since the end of 2013. That means it's rolled over more than a dozen times without a top prize winner, but that's not stopping Arkansans from making big plans hoping to be the next winner.

"I'll vacation with my kids, and um… I don't know, maybe go fishing," said Powerball player Terry Anderson.

"Go to Disney World… Nooo... buy everybody in my family a house, buy them a car make sure they're doing ok for a little bit, give the rest to charity," added Powerball player Jesus Munoz.

"I play the same numbers every week," said Powerball player Greg Short, and has Short won before?  "Ahh little bit, 10 bucks here 12 bucks here 15 but ... tonight's my lucky night," added Short.
