Big Powerball jackpot giving people high hopes

OLEY TWP., Pa. - The Powerball jackpot is up to $425 million.

The odds of winning the jackpot is 1 in 175 million; but, that did not stop some people in Berks County from trying their luck.

Several people lined up at Andre Farms Market in Oley Township. Last year a one million dollar winning ticket was sold there.

Others were not even willing to participate in Powerball fever: "I guess I don't feel the odds are in my favor, so I just don't get excited about it," said Brian Roth.

This is the 4th largest of any US lottery jackpot. Of the 43 states that participate in the Powerball, Pennsylvania has had the most jackpot winners since 2003.
