Powerball jackpot at $400 million tonight


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The Powerball jackpot has once again climbed to $400 million. It's the fifth largest jackpot in history.

Flocks of millionaire hopefuls are making their way to their nearest gas station with dreams of winning it big.

Even though the odds are less than one in 175 million, James Wright says he has big plans for the money if he wins. He says he would buy a new car and a house. But he said his true love is on the water.

"I like to fish so probably a big old boat, you know. And that would probably be my most frivolous purchase," he said.

So, do you want to be a millionaire? Despite the slim odds, after tonight some of you could see your bank accounts soar to new heights.

Powerball tickets are on sale until 10 pm., so you still have a chance to strike it rich. The drawing is at 11 p.m.
