DENVER — You might have noticed people at work acting a little more excited than usual, maybe a few daydreaming.
It’s likely they’ve got a case of Powerball Fever.
Millions infected with the hope they can win a record Powerball Jackpot of more than $550 million.
The last biggest Powerball jackpot was $365 million in 2006, shared by several ConAgra Foods workers in Lincoln, Neb.
It’s a small piece of paper that holds big dreams.
“Half a billion dollars. There’s a good chance of winning that. I’m trying to get in on that money,” laughs Lawrence Washington of Denver.
Odds of winning are just 1 in 175 million.
