Colorado Lottery signs can't even fit the record-breaking $1.3 billion jackpot

DENVER - Colorado Powerball signs weren't prepared for the jackpot to roll over into another week.

Colorado Lottery said their jackpot signs can only fit enough digits for $999 million.

No one won the big prize on Saturday, ballooning the Powerball prize to $1.3 billion. This is the largest lottery jackpot ever available in North America.

Colorado Lottery said they'll "have to get creative," but for now, signs are stuck at 9-9-9.

A lump sum is currently worth $806 million if someone claims it this week.

The next drawing happens Wednesday night. The prize is expected to climb even higher by then.
