Tonight's Powerball jackpot $245 million

READ MORE:

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Feeling lucky? You might want to go buy a Powerball ticket.

The jackpot for tonight's drawing is an estimated $245 million. It's the largest prize pool in the multi-state drawing since August.

Your chances of winning are about one in 195 million. Still that doesn't stop many folks from dreaming of what they would do if they win I all.

"Probably the first thing I would do would be pay off my parents house and get them a vacation house, and then I would probably call a lawyer and a financial expert, so I wouldn't whittle away all the money in three days, because I think I can do that," said Chris Gordon as he bought tickets in Wilmington Wednesday afternoon.

Make sure to tune into WWAY NewsChannel 3 at 11 to see the winning numbers.

What happened?????????

Whoa, last night's story was Feeling Lucky? The lottery value was $245,000,000.00 So this morning data from the lottery web site shows that around $228,000.00 were paid out in winnings. So why is the lottery value is now $20,000,000.00. Where did the money go? Can we get a little reporting on this?

I was thinking the same thing, don't understand it.

The lottery is made up of several states...no one from NC won the top prize.
