A nice chunk of change could be waiting for the person with the right combination of numbers in tomorrow night’s Powerball.

Workers with lottery agents like Gino’s Drive-Thru in Youngstown were changing the signs advertising the jackpot – now up to $600-million dollars.

Several people stopped by the drive through to get their tickets for office pools and were already contemplating how they’d spend their winnings.

“Take care of some of my family, help some other people and then go away for a while until the dust kind of settles,” said Norman Mansfield, who works at Valley Industrial Trucks.

The previous record jackpot was $587 million. Experts predict by the time peak sales happen Saturday night, tickets could be selling at a rate of 10,000 per minute.
