Feeling lucky? After all, it is St. Patrick's Day and how lucky would you be with a pot of gold at the end of the day and a cool estimated $455 million.

That is the amount of the Powerball jackpot for tonight's drawing. (March 17)

After 19 straight drawings failed to produce a winner in the lotto, tonight's jackpot is one of the biggest in the multi-state U.S. lottery's history.

According to one Bismarck retailer, the sales have been brisk, and with St. Patrick's Day in full force, the unnamed sales clerk at the Bismarck location said most people are buying their normal numbers and some are purchasing digits with a St. Patty's luck. Like the numbers of letters in the word green (5), and the number of letters in Patrick (7) and adding that number to their age or the number of children they have. Whatever works!

Who knows, your chance of winning the jackpot is currently 1 in 292 million.

The drawing is at 9:59 (cst) tonight.

The last lucky winner was on Jan. 6, for a jackpot of $559.7 million, and that winner was from one single ticket. What LUCK!
