David Brown purchased his Powerball ticket Monday morning at Food Giant. He doesn’t always play the multi-state lottery game, but “when it gets to $1.3 billion, I do,” he said. Because millions of people like Brown across the U.S. had their eyes set on the record-breaking winnings, the estimated jackpot continued to grow up until the drawing at 10 p.m. Wednesday. Other Kentucky Lottery outlets in Marion – Five Star Food Mart, Ideal Market and Marion Discount Tobacco – stayed busy printing tickets this week.
