ANCHORAGE -

The Nenana Ice Classic comes with a record jackpot of more than $363,000 this year, but the prize will be divvied up among many this time around.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports that at least 24 winning tickets with this year's winning time have been counted in Alaska's popular game, in which people guess the date and exact time the ice will break up in the Tanana River in the interior town of Nenana.

The ice broke up Friday at 3:48 p.m. Alaska Standard Time. This year's jackpot of $363,627 is the largest in the classic's 98-year history.

Ice classic manager Cherrie Forness says thousands of tickets remain to be counted. Forness says it could take about a week before the total number of winners is announced.
