The Powerball jackpot reaches a new high of 600 million dollars. Lottery officials expect this number to continue soaring before the drawing Saturday night.

The previous record of about 587 million dollar was set last November. Retailers around the Red River Valley say customers are buying several tickets at a time. Local gas station employees say they've sold hundreds of tickets already today and expect even more sales tomorrow.

Jesse Linstad: "I'd buy a bunch of stuff, pay a bunch of bills and live very simply, quietly somewhere else."

If no ticket matches all five numbers and the Powerball Saturday night... the jackpot will continue growing.
