Powerball mania! Brian Kramp talks with last-minute players hoping for that $1.5 BILLION jackpot
MILWAUKEE — Wednesday night, January 13th may be the pinnacle of the Powerball hysteria. Unless, of course, no one wins — yet again! The next Powerball drawing is set for 9:59 p.m. — and there will probably be at least one winner. A record-shattering $1.5 BILLION is up for grabs.
The last drawing on January 9 marked the 19th without a grand prize winner.
Disclaimer: The winner won’t take home the full $1.5 billion. First, there will be a nine-digit tax bill. And odds are there will be more than one winning ticket. In that case, the prize money is split evenly among them.
But a winning ticket will still be a staggering payday.
Despite it being an unlucky day (January 13th), plenty of folks are hoping they’ll be the lucky winner of that $1.5 billion!
