Powerball ticket sales soared across the country.

The $630 million jackpot, the Multi-State Lottery Association says, was higher than estimates and fueled by fast-growing numbers of people plopping down 2 bucks for a million-to-1 shot at the fortune.

Actually, the odds were way worse than that: 1 in 292.2 million, Powerball says.
