BATON ROUGE (NBC33) — Its rising again, $4 million is up for grabs in tonight’s Powerball.
People across the area are heading to the store to snatch up their tickets fast. Falon Packard stopped by a local gas station and bought 200 tickets. The jackpot surged from $330 million, after no one hit all six numbers in Saturday’s drawing.
"If I won 400 mill right now I could get out of my tiny apartment, buy a house, land, and car. My daughter would go to the best schools. I don’t think I would work ever," Packard said.
If there's a winner tonight, it would be the first Powerball winner of 2014. The last time someone hit the jackpot was back on Christmas Day in 2013.
