HARRISONBURG -- Tonight's Powerball jackpot is the third largest in the game's history.

"Well first of all, I'd help my children and grandchildren go to college and just you know, help a lot of charities," said Kay Polusen, concerning what she would do with her winning Powerball ticket.

Besides all that, Pulsen says she'd also like to travel.

The increase in the cost of a Powerball ticket from $1 to $2 is the reason behind the increase in the jackpot.

People who bought Powerball tickets today, purchased several. They're hoping to increase their chances of winning.

Powerball isn't the only lottery game that has increased its winnings, so has the Mega Millions, whose jackpot is now a $190 million.

The next drawing for the Mega Millions is Friday.

"Not really, but you know somebody is going to win," said Pulsen, when asked if she thinks she is going to win.

According to experts, the chances of her winning is one in 178,000,000.

The next Powerball Jackpot drawing happens Wednesday at 11:00 p.m.
