Big Powerball Jackpot

165 million dollars.

That's the jackpot up for grabs in Wednesday's Powerball Lottery drawing. The jackpot has been growing since late January.

More than 5,000 locations across North Carolina sell the Powerball tickets, and many are anticipating a prosperous week of ticket sales.

WITN-TV is Eastern Carolina's official Powerball station. You can watch the LIVE drawings each Wednesday and Saturday right before WITN-7 News at 11.
