More Powerball players seeking big jackpots only


The allure of capturing the $425 million Powerball jackpot has players in a buying frenzy, further confirming that Powerball players often don't get into the game until the jackpot offers big bucks.


A recent game change increased the frequency of huge jackpots, and Wednesday's third largest-ever jackpot comes only a few months after the biggest Powerball jackpot in history - a $590 million pot won in Florida.


Lottery officials acknowledge smaller jackpots don't create the buzz they once did, and there's a bit of jackpot fatigue.


But when jackpots swell, people still line up for their chance at a life-changing payoff, even though the odds of winning the top prize are the same if there is a small jackpot.


The next drawing is scheduled for Wednesday night.
