Florida will have its first Powerball drawing on January 7th 2009 and the Florida Lotto is getting people ready. A special event Friday night at the Governor's Square Mall set out to show lottery fans how to play Powerball--with some other games on the side.
For the people you see here--they're excited to be a part of the multi-state power play. Norman Moore said, "This is a new game...I don' t know how it's going to be yet, but the regular lottery has been great, I play it a couple times a week. I'm looking forward to finding out how this one's going to be and going for the bigger jackpot."
Like the Florida Lottery--Powerball contributions will go towards education as well.
