It's a case of lottery fever for many around the country. The Powerball jackpot is now $550 million and millions are hoping they're holding the lucky numbers. Our Innae Park was at Stewart’s, which has seen a steady stream of people picking up tickets throughout the day.

UNITED STATES -- It's the largest jackpot in Powerball history and it's still growing as we inch closer to tonight's drawing.

The jackpot is now $550 million.

The week started off with a $425 million jackpot, then increased to $500 million Tuesday as ticket sales increased.

With the $550 million dollar jackpot, the cash option would be $360.2 million before taxes.

Lottery officials say there's a 75 percent chance the winning numbers will be drawn tonight.
