For the power ball this week but apparently nobody wonders and another myth that the jackpot just keeps going up. ABC news correspondent Ryan Borough live in Chicago to Maureen Ryan. Good morning if you're hoping. Permitted to view the the numbers for Saturday strike and Daria don't have those. And fortunately it's it's rolled over nineteen times will be drawing number twenty. Men we have not seen a winners since essentially issuance of 500 intent. Oh million dollars and has gone higher than that this is in fact he did highest in powerball history and the eighth highest. Jackpot in any of the trying to of these factored Mega Millions. Or power also this is about the time half a billion dollars when people don't usually played against or dignity of the lights. Our I'll grab a ticket maybe I'll grab the ticket for the office maybe elbow and a couple of my neighbors or something like that that. I'd that is this is what we call amateur hour in the in the powerball. Drawing games. So how can they do a new and they do in Chicago where they draw the the numbers were to go with a ping pong balls or is it more to it. They're a big deal would go with the policy you've got 12345. Is just six balls in total five from the regular balls and then and then one powerball number. It's two dollars a ticket you're odds are I just terrible they're just awful lot about back to sugarcoat it for you it's. One in 292. Million. And that is that is one reason why we've in this bank rolled over. Twenty times so much but it's created this way on purpose they want speed big jackpots. Because. Com that's when more people play but also if figure with these terrible and very long odds. Are more people can which of these smaller nurses ball in the end yeah exactly exactly help. You know you go ideally your two dollars down you may win fourteen don't expect or he might win out some other prides itself more valuable. And it would still be went right to the people. People just drop their money down not picky about it and you probably lose. So that the computer actually prints out the ticket at the numbers for you or can you choose your own numbers I don't do this I don't know worked. He had done arable blaze. If you've got a lucky numbers you wanna play Gulfport a key divine sphere of five numbers I'd like to say that there's a rhyme or reason behind these numbers but now. A lot of people just go and slam their money down and just like these are random quick text mom. Unfortunately for people who play at this time when when the jackpot gets this I. You may see a split pot because so many people are playing now you know you've made even if you get all the numbers you may have to share that 510 million dollars with someone but he. I cash option that you say I just want their money up front in cash. Outright now 324. Million dollars that's before tax. Before taxes. For well that protect as he goes out to seven dollars and fifty cents. At what the odds are long been on your Ryan your run out and you'll probably. Now boost the odds by buying about fifty these tickets writer. And threaten Celek.
