HOUSTON—If you are feeling lucky you may want to pick up a Powerball ticket because the jackpot is now $320 million. However, you may want to drive to Louisiana to pick up your ticket.

That’s because if you are looking for a history of winning you need to head east.

The jackpot is one of the biggest in U.S. history. Texas state lottery officials say that tickets are setting about triple the normal rate here.  That is 2,254 a minute.

You have until about 9:45 p.m. Wednesday night to get tickets for the drawing.

If there is no winner Tuesday night the next drawing would be the biggest Powerball in history and the second largest ever.
