DORCHESTER, Mass. (WWLP) – If you missed out on the Mega Millions billion-dollar jackpot last week, you have a chance to hit it big again on Powerball.
The Powerball jackpot for Monday night is an estimated $502 million. It will be the 28th drawing since anyone won. The last winner was on November 19th, when a $92.9 million jackpot was won.
22News spoke with David Glantz, Owner of Buckeye Bros Smoke Shop in Springfield, about the effects of lottery jackpots on small businesses.
“It’s good for business, it is good for small businesses, like mine,” Glantz said. “It brings people in, it brings more people out to play it. Like I said, I just hope somebody local hits it.”
Drawings are held every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. Massachusetts is one of 45 states that offer Powerball, as well as Washington D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Tickets are $2 each and can be bought until 9:50 p.m.
