$600 Million Powerball Jackpot

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -

Powerball numbers have been picked for one of the largest jackpots ever. Those numbers are 22, 10, 13, 14, and 52. The powerball number is 11.

Powerball is a game of numbers, and lottery officials say the majority of possible combinations have already been purchased ahead of Saturday night's near-historic $600 million drawing.
 
The odds of winning the game's largest jackpot remain astronomically low: 1 in 175.2 million.
 
But since about 80 percent of the possible combinations have been purchased, lottery officials say it's likely the winning ticket could be selected.
 
People lined up at gas stations and convenience stores Saturday for their chance at striking it rich.
 
South Carolina resident Benjamin Richardson says the few bucks he spends for every drawing are worth it. He also reasons that "it's all luck anyway."
