Powerball Jackpot Balloons To $675M, The Biggest In US History

The Powerball jackpot is estimated to hit the largest lottery prize in U.S. history: $675 million.

And some say it could get even closer to the billion mark because the the next drawing won't be until Saturday. (Video via WLS-TV

There've been 18 drawings since November but no jackpot winners, so the prize has swelled.

A few players walked away with $1 million or $2 million, but no one has correctly picked that red ball. (Video via WCMH)

The previous record was $656 million in 2012. Powerball started in 1992.
