CAPE CORAL, Fla. - Southwest Floridians are hitting up local gas stations to grab Powerball tickets Wednesday morning.
The jackpot has increased to $500 million dollars. A lottery spokesperson says if one person wins in Florida, the payout would be about $330 million, after taxes if taken in one lump sum.
