Lottery lovers hope to win big in weekend jackpot

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Lottery lovers have two chances to hit it big this weekend.

Saturday's Powerball is worth $159 million.

One player says if he wins he'd help the homeless and hungry and find other ways to give back to the community.

"I'd like to be a winner one day," said Waymon Jackson. "If I win, I'd dance all night and show the world some love."
