Transcript for Second largest Powerball jackpot in history
We spich to the Powerball jackpot approaching $700 million for a jackpot. Since the middle of June, and if it seems those winless streaks are lasting longer and longer, you're right. ABC's gio Benitez tonight explaining why. Reporter: Tonight, the countdown clock to riches is ticking. I got the millions right here. Reporter: With no winner on Saturday, Wednesday's Powerball jackpot is now $700 million. That lump sum payment, more than $443 million dollars -- the last time someone matched all five numbers plus the Powerball -- more than two months ago. So why the huge jackpots? Powerball officials added more numbers to the mix, making it easier to win smler prizes, but lengthening the odds for the jackpot from 1 in 175 million, to 1 in 292 million. And this jackpot has already rolled over 20 times since June 14th. It's approaching record territory, the biggest jackpot ever? $1.6 billion. One of those two winning tickets sold to a lucky family at this convenience store in chino hills last year. That morning, it looked like most of the town was celebrating inside. And David tonight, some tips from billionaire mark Cuban if you win the Powerball. Hire a tax attorney first, don't take the lump sum and always remember, it's just money, it's not happiness. David? It helps. Gio Benitez tonight, thank you. And good luck to everyone.
