Powerball fever is spreading all through Central Pennsylvania.
Business across the area told WTAJ that there has been a steady flow of people buying lottery tickets today, with the hopes of snagging the 400-million-dollar jackpot.  And everyone we spoke with already has plans on how they’ll spend the money.
"I would truly help my entire family out if I won the lottery,” said Ida Dutton, who has been playing Powerball for years.  “It's way more than I ever need, but it would be great to help a lot of other people. I'd like to see a lot of winners."
The overall odds of winning some sort of prize are one in 31.85.  The odds of winning the grand prize however, are one in 175,223,510.

You can find out if you have the winning ticket, by tuning into WTAJ tonight at 10:59 p.m.
