St. Charles ( KSDK ) -- In a day or so, we should learn who, if anyone, is the next fabulously wealthy person ( or people ) on the planet.

The Powerball lottery jackpot prize is just north of 600 million dollars.

The ticket machine at the MotoMart on 3rd Street in St. Charles was cranking out steadily all day.

This is the 2nd largest jackpot in U.S. history.

The MegaMillions game in March 2012 still stands as the largest lottery jackpot ever, at 656 million dollars. One of the winning tickets for that drawing was sold in Red Bud, Illinois.
