good morning. it's the top of the hour. 8:00 here in new york. here's a look at some of the stories we're watching for you this morning. power ball fever. we've got it. it's gripping the country. crowds rushing to buy tickets in time for tonight's drawing. the jackpot at a record $800 million. el chapo back behind bars in the same prison from which he escaped.
8:56 am
him filming a bioffic was tipped off. and the golden globes. how to bring the glitz and glamour into your home. today, january 29th, 2016. >> millions of dollars would help with that. >> that would throw a great party. >> good morning. welcome back to "today" on this saturday morning. we've got a great crowd out here with us. >> hey, guys. >> i'm erica hill alongside jeff rossen and dylan dreyer. >> it is a huge weekend between the power ball and the golden globes. >> and the playoffs. >> you're right. it is playoff weekend. >> and we have our own power ball machine inside. we had a lucky winner earlier. these are the kinds of balls they use popping around. we spoke earlier here on "today" to the guys pulling the numbers tonight. they do this in a non-descript building in florida. lots of security. >> they're like a ping-pong ball
8:57 am
>> like a velvet? >> that was always one of my questions. now i know. >> it's all gone to dylan's head. >> the winner was ball number 17 that dylan picked. maybe throw that in with your ticket this morning. we want to begin with the power ball frenzy we can't stop talking about. reaching a fever pitch as we said the largest jackpot ever. $800 million is up for grabs. kristen dahlgren is in line about to buy more tickets. kristen, good morning. >> reporter: i'm going to be broke at the end of this day. hopefully i do win. now is a good time to buy. no line right now. we have seen people come in all morning. i haven't seen anyone come in for coffee and not ask for a ticket as well. lottery officials don't know what to expect. have never seen a number this high. it could go up depending on how ticket sales are today. we have seen record sales so far. lines dozens deep in places.
8:58 am
some places are actually running out of the paper to run the tickets because we're seeing so many people in here. this is exactly what lottery officials wanted when they lowered the odds of winning power ball back in october. they added a few extra numbers so it went from 1 in 175 million win. so really long odds. we've talked about it. you have a greater chance of being killed by an asteroid, but that isn't stopping people. they are still out here buying. lottery officials say about 65% of the possible number combinations will have been bout by the draws. that is a greater than 50% chance somebody wins. everyone says why not buy every combination of the numbers that would cost you $584 million. if you took the lump sum payout, you wouldn't be ahead. about this. it is going to go up over a billion dollars. guys.
8:59 am
if we think this is a frenzy, i can't even imagine. thanks. >> and the odds are so interesting. you have more of a chance of being in the nba, being the president of the united states. which is 1 in 10 million. who knew it was that low. you, too, could be president of the united states. and as we wait to see who the next winner is, hard to forget those who have won big already only to lose it all again. we've heard that story over and over again. but there are success stories out there of people who have hit the jackpot and done well with it. adam couperstein has more on that. it doesn't take much to convince me you could do well with this money. >> reporter: no, jeff. there's many in line here since they opened the doors. those odds are slim. 1 in 292 million. some people win the big jackpot and some spend the money wisely.
9:00 am
many hope $2 will be the gateway to their dreams. >> i'm sure i'd move somewhere else. >> pay my bills. pay my house. >> reporter: but for some who win it big, winning the lottery could be a nightmare. according to a vanderbilt study, lottery winners are twice as likely to declare bankruptcy than non-winners. like this man. he won $16 million and lost it all. and willie who says winning $450 million is the worst thing that ever happened to him. so how do some avoid the pitfalls? some say by staying grounded and sharing. mary and brian losey enjoy their new home, love to travel, and spend time at their vacation home. >> we go through kind of the honeymoon phase, going buying all the fun stuff. then you kind of settle in and try to start doing the smart thing. >> their town didn't have a grocery store, so they built one.

9:02 am
>> adam, thank you so much. good luck to you as you play as well. we all know it is virtually jackpot. it is. but someone has to win. why shouldn't it be you? >> olivia sterns is here to give us a few tips. good morning. >> good morning. >> so there are actually some things we can do to narrow the odds a little. >> yes. ever so slightly. so 75% of us choose to have the computer pick the numbers. those are called quick picks. turns out 75% of the winners are quick picks. there's nothing you can specifically do to improve your odds, but it might be a better idea to have the computer pick your number because a lot of us choose lucky numbers which are maybe birthdays or anniversaries, dates, and 31 days in the month, they go up to 31. power ball goes up to 69. if you do win, it might be a more crowded trade. so maybe you are better off going with the computer picks. that said, there are a couple of

9:04 am
everybody can blow any sum of money even if it's $800 million. so please consider hiring a team of experts. check what the tax implications are. decide whether or not you want to get this in one lump sum. if you do, it's down to about $496 million. >> one last quick question. what about anonymity? can you stay anonymous? >> six states allow you to choose it. please don't go online and brag that you won on social media because it draws a lot of bad -- you know, people who might have you. consider choosing anonymous. if you can, the lottery doesn't like it because they like the publicity. and if you do win, if you are so lucky, consider donating to charity not only because it's the right thing to do but because there are a lot of potentially positive tax implications. >> a lot are giving tips in case you win.
9:05 am
win, this is for you. >> should we remind them who gave the tips. your team is here. sheinelle's in the studio too. we're all available. olivia, thanks. earlier in the show we asked what would be the first thing you'd do if you won the power ball. the choices give money to your family, take the money and run, quit your job, buy a mansion. the results are in. >> give money to your family, 42%. quit your job, 27%. take the money and run, 23%. and only 8% of you would buy a mansion. so a lot of generous people out there at least in our poll. >> it's because it's the weekend "today" show and they're sitting next to their family right now. turning now to that dramatic arrest of el chapo. sheinelle has more on that for us as well as other headlines we're following for you. >> this is a big one. el chapo is back behind bars this morning. he was transferred to the same jail where he staged the daring
