MILWAUKEE -- There were no winners to Saturday night’s $625 Million jackpot. Now, that number is higher. $750 million is the new Powerball Jackpot for Wednesday’s drawing.

66-52-60-24-25 & 5, these are numbers no one chose, but everyone wishes they did Saturday night.

Richard Klamik is excited the number is growing, but won’t be playing this week.

“I was supposed to win, but it’s good that it rolls over and gives someone else a chance to win,” said Klamik.

Now many in South Eastern Wisconsin are already buying tickets for Wednesday’s Powerball drawing and thinking about what they’d do if they win.

Jason Fluhr was out with his son Sunday, he didn’t know the jackpot was that high.

“Thats, a lot of money. If I won I’d buy 100 acres of land and live in the middle of it,” said Fluhr.

That $750 million is still the fourth highest jackpot. The world record jackpot was $1.586 billion dollars back in January of 2016
