MARYLAND HEIGHTS, MO. (KTVI) – The St. Louis area has Powerball fever; over $500 million dollars is up for grabs in Wednesday’s drawing. FOX2 reporter Roche Madden talked to one person buying tickets earlier Wednesday, who’s been struck 3 times in her life by lightning. Now she’s hoping to strike it rich in the Powerball lottery drawing.
But the odds of striking it rich and winning tonight’s Powerball drawing of $500,000,000 are a slim, 1 in 175,223,510.
And the machines you buy your tickets from, are running white hot, selling ticket at a rate of 105,000 tickets every minute before the drawing.
