The historic Powerball jackpot rose to a record $500 million on Tuesday and many East Haven residents are expected to purchase a ticket Wednesday — if they haven't already.
In Canton, tickets are available at Canton Mobil, ShopRite of Canton and Canton Citgo Quick Mart, according to the lottery web site.
There has been no Powerball winner since Oct. 6. The chance of winning the $500 million jackpot is 1 in 175,223,510.
Good luck (you'll need it)!
