Powerball Fever: The luckiest places in the KC area to play Powerball

Saturday's Powerball jackpot is now the highest jackpot in the game's history.

At $600 million, the game surpassed the previous high -- $587.6 -- won by both the Hill family in Dearborn, Mo., and an Arizona resident.

The largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history was $656 million in the Mega Millions game in March 2012. That was split by three tickets sold in Illinois, Kansas and Maryland.

The Powerball game is played in 43 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. A single ticket costs $2, and the odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 175,223,510.
