Powerball jackpot hits record $425 million

Looking to win big - lottery players line up for tickets - after the Powerball jackpot hit a record $425 million dollars. Held in 42 U.S. states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands, Powerball reached its new high - after no one won the drawing on Saturday. On Monday, New Yorkers played their odds - and couldn't resist dreaming about how to spend the money. Lottery player Greg Manko. SOUNDBITE: GREG MANKO, NEW YORK RESIDENT "I actually saw something about donating some money for Hurricane Sandy relief, so that's actually the first thing I thought of when he said 'is it the lucky ticket.' And then of course, something for my family and my friends. Maybe an apartment here in New York, so that would be good." In March, three winning tickets shared the largest ever U.S. lottery jackpot - a $656 million Mega Millions prize. Officials have said Powerball's $425 million total could go higher - if the big payout spurs big ticket sales. On Wednesday, multi-millionaire hopefuls will find out if they picked the winning numbers - when the next Powerball drawing is held.
