Locals cross fingers as they wait for winning Powerball numbers to be drawn


What would you do with $334 million?

That's the big question a lot of Seacoast residents were asking themselves Saturday afternoon as they awaited the Powerball drawings.

For the 17th time since November 7th, the drawing results for the Powerball lottery have rolled over without a winner. This has caused the jackpot to continuously grow.

"I bought five," Seacoast resident Jan Kearce said. "I know that there are millions of odds against me but why not? You know that's what I figure and I have lots of, you know, crazy ideas of what I would do with the money."

At more $334 million and with a cash value of $205 million, the jackpot could finally be won Saturday night by one of New Hampshire's own.

"I would probably try to retire. Whether I could actually do that I don't know, but it would be nice to think I could," Pat Christe from Newfields said.

"I think I would definitely go some place warm. You know my wife and I like the islands so Carribean Islands or something like that," said Exeter resident, Brian Hermes.

Tune in to WBIN-Derry Saturday night at 10:59 for a live drawing of the Powerball lottery.
