Update 01/10/16: Those lucky numbers still haven’t been picked and the Powerball is estimated to hit an insane $1.3 billion for Wednesday’s drawing. There were two million-dollar winners in Ohio, though. So, good for those people, eh?

Update 01/09/16: The already record-setting Powerball jackpot is even higher, reaching to $900 million.
Don’t forget to enter the #Win614 contest before midnight. Just tell us via Twitter what you would do with $900 million in your pocket (minus the copious amount of taxes taken out, of course).[symple_button url=”http://nbc4i.com/2016/01/08/powerball-raises-to-900-million/” color=”red” button_target=”_self”]Read More[/symple_button]
If the guy in this video hits Powerball’s record-high prize, now estimated at $800 million, he said he will spend it on hookers and cocaine. That’s a pretty bold investment plan, but we think Columbus can do better.
Win big: #Win614
Hit up Twitter with how you would spend the record-high Powerball prize money using #Win614 and you could win $50 in scratch lottery tickets. That’s slightly less than $800 million, but you don’t need to be Rain Man to know your chances of winning are probably better than the 1 in 292.2 million odds that you’ll land the Powerball.
Winners will be selected by the 614 editorial staff. The contest ends midnight Jan. 9.
