CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Someone right here in western Massachusetts could be the next half a billionaire. Of course, the actual amount gets knocked down after taxes, but it’s still an enormous amount of money.
Saturday’s Powerball drawing caused many people to take a two dollar chance at a dream.
The jackpot hasn’t been won since June, and it just keeps growing
“If I won the money,” said Robert Deleonardis, “I’d help out my kids who could use it, buy myself a new house, new car, and give a bunch of it to charity.”
Powerball is played in 44 states, as well as Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Saturday’s winning numbers were: 17, 19, 39, 43, 68 and Powerball 13. As of Sunday morning, the Powerball jackpot has reached $650 million.
