DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A New Jersey construction worker says he's in charge of buying Powerball tickets for a group of about a dozen co-workers.
Frank Scorvino of Toms River, N.J., says if they hit Saturday's $325 million jackpot, most of them would purchase new houses and cars, and maybe go on a cruise.
The jackpot is the fourth-largest in the game's history. Powerball jackpots have increased more rapidly since the price doubled to $2 in January.
Powerball organizers say this is the first run-up to a large jackpot that's fallen over a major holiday. They're unsure of the impact on sales.
South Bend, Ind., resident Dameon Smith says he'd retire from his job at the Hummer plant in Mishawaka, Ind. He said he'd share with family, friends and people he doesn't know.
