Gas stations and convenience stores across the country have become destinations today as would-be millionaires try their luck at a $600 million multi-state Powerball Lottery.
The $600 million represents the world's second largest overall jackpot, almost eclipsing a $656 million Mega Millions jackpot in March of 2012.
Before you rush out to buy a ticket, consider this: the odds of winning the Powerball jackpot is 1 in 175 million.
The odds of being struck by lightning is 1 in 700,000.
The odds of being crushed to death by a vending machine in the U.S. is 1 in 112 million.
42 states take part in the multi-state Powerball Lottery, including Florida.
The drawing takes place tonight (Saturday) at 9:59 central time.
