Wednesday is the last time most people living today will see a repeating day, month and year -- 12/12/12. A mark of luck? Lottery officials seem to think so. Do engaged couples find it appealing? Of course, say wedding planners. Even the universe found a way to mark the occasion with an early-morning meteor shower.
The drawing for the second-largest lottery jackpot of all time is Wednesday night, when it will either irrevocably alter the life of a lucky ticket holder or send the nation into a never-before-seen state of money mania — again.
A $320 million Powerball jackpot is scheduled for Wednesday night, and officials are hoping the multimillion-dollar mania that seized the area earlier this year could turn the drawing into a record-breaking win.
What would you do with $500 million? That's a question millions of people across the country are asking themselves as the clock ticks down to Friday's record-breaking Mega Millions lottery drawing.
Virginia Lottery Executive Director Paula Otto said the option to choose 1-2-1-2 for its Pick 4 drawing sold out Tuesday and was on track to sell out for both day and night drawings on Wednesday.
This year the Virginia Lottery has seen a few interesting number combinations, Ms. Otto said, such as Oct. 11, when the Pick 4 was 2-2-1-1, and the next day on Oct. 12, it was 5-5-5-5.
