WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Residents with $2 and a dream are hoping to cash in on a $301 million jackpot during Wednesday's Powerball drawing, according to Forbes.
It could be the last big payday the lottery game pays out before the system is revamped to make hitting the jackpot even harder than it is now. After Saturday, the system will be overhauled to offer more chances at smaller prizes (as low as one in 25), but the odds of winning the big one are set to increase (one in 292 million). The current odds of winning the Powerball Jackpot are one in 175 million, Forbes reported.
