MILWAUKEE - Gamblers across southeast Wisconsin are hoping for an early Christmas present.

The Powerball jackpot is giant - up to $325 million - and stores like Oklahoma Liquor on Milwaukee's south side are cashing in.

The business just delivered a $1 million payout last month and the new jackpot is enticing to say the least.

Saturday's jackpot is just $20 million shy of the largest Powerball payout ever.  If you take the lump sum, it's a cool $212 million.

Odds of winning are about one in 175 million.
