Powerball coming to Florida

What would you do with $365 million?

Until now, Florida players have been on the outside looking in at jackpots like that. But in about five weeks, PowerBall's huge jackpot is coming to Florida.

Tickets will be going on sale January 4th. The first drawing is January 7th. Jackpots currently start at $15 million, but that will go up when Florida players get involved.

"For the players especially it's a really big deal. It's much bigger jackpots than we're used to here in our state. The game is changing a little bit with the launch in Florida also, for example, the new jackpots are going to start at $20 million," said a representative.

Each Powerball ticket costs $1. The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 146 million.
