ATLANTA -

Who wants to a millionaire?  How about 600 times over?  The already gigantic Powerball jackpot for this Saturday night's drawing has risen again, hitting $600 million at noon on Friday—which is the highest in the history of the game.  

Georgia Lottery officials say it's the second largest jackpot in U.S. history.  The Powerball jackpot has been rolling over since April 3.  Though no one picked all six numbers correctly on Wednesday, two winners from the metro Atlanta area won $1 million each.  

Friday's Mega Millions jackpot has also soared to $190 million. The winning numbers for that jackpot were 11-15-35-43-49 with the Mega Ball 41.

If you plan to play Powerball, you've got until 10 p.m. Saturday night to get your tickets—which are $2.00 per play.

    Robert De Niro says Tribeca Film Festival is his passion

    Robert De Niro is a family man, a filmmaker, an entrepreneur and one of my favorite actors of all time. He's also a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, which has more to see than ever before. De Niro wears just as many hats on screen as he does in real life. The father of six starred in six films last year, owns four restaurants and a hotel, and still finds time each spring for the Tribeca Film Festival, Lower Manhattan's annual cinematic showcase.
