But we begin with that record jackpot, $425 million, almost half a billion dollars there for the taking. Last night's powerball drawing came up empty and with no winner we're now looking at the largest cash prize in the history of the game and the second biggest jackpot ever. John muller joins us live from new york city with the story. There's my ticket to a dream take a look at that magic number in red. 425 million. No lines here on the upper west side. Be an early bird, get your ticket, because as the frenzy builds and the wednesday night jackpot approaches, that line is expected to climb. A mad dash saturday night for the last-minute chance to win $325 million, the thanksgiving payout to be truly thankful for. Somebody's got to win. Reporter: But those six numbers seemed to be more elusive than a parking lot spot on black friday. The jackpot now swells to $425 million. The largest jackpot in powerball history. Enough dough to buy 2,000 ferraris or the entire country of anguillas, twice. It also surpasses $365 million. The odds of winning your $425 million, still 1 in 175 million. That's about 25 times less likely than you winning an academy award. But don't let the odds flush your dreams away, somebody has to win it. Like they say, you got to be in it to win it. The jackpot drawing is wednesday night. It could go higher than $425 million. The lump sum payout would be $238 million. Not too shabby at all.
