This is the kind of week were the bucks really start to roll in at the Missouri lottery. Lottery spokeswoman Susan Goedde says people take notice when the Powerball hits $50 or 100 million. Most weeks, the lottery sells 1.5 million Powerball tickets. Last week, they moved 4.7 million. And Goedde says that’s just a shadow of the ticket sales they saw in Missouri when the Powerball jackpot hit its all-time high of $295 million. This week’s drawing was worth $130 (M) million. A group of co-workers in New Mexico will split the winnings after buying the winning ticket.
