Local residents try to win the $384 million Powerball jackpot
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS) —
The Powerball jackpot is $384 million.
The drawing will happen Saturday night at 10 pm.
The odds of winning a Powerball is $200 million to 1, however, millions will still make their way to purchase a ticket to be that lucky one.
One local man said if he won, he would use the money to give back to those in need.
“I would take care of my family back home in St. Louis,” Powerball Player Donald Marion said, “and start a program for the homeless [and] just have programs to help those less fortunate."
And keep in mind, the new tax law going into effect by the time someone can claim the big jackpots.
There will be a huge difference in how much money you take home.
