"The largest Powerball prize ever awarded in Kentucky was $128 million several years ago to a couple out of Georgetown".

I don't play Powerball because there are too many numbers and my chances of winning are too slim. "We had a Texas player actually win that here in Arkansas", she said. "A shot in the dark, but you have to try". More numbers were added to the twice-weekly drawings to make the lottery tougher to win. Those changes also reduced the likelihood of winning the top prize on a given ticket.
