With $2 and the right combination of six numbers you could win a cool $550 million. The odds are 175,223,510 to one. You've got a better chance of getting struck by lightning but people buying Powerball tickets at World Wide News in Downtown Rochester say lady luck is on their side, "I'm fitting to get bit and shot by lightning right now, because this is going to be payoff right here," said ticket buyer Selena Ingram. Fellow ticket buyer Gregory Coates added, "I got the ticket right now."
Some are already thinking about what they would do with the $360 million cash pay out, "probably go nuts and not go to work but I would probably do a lot of things for my family maybe try to take a few trips do some things that I haven't had an opportunity to do in my lifetime," said ticket buyer Leon Dyson. Fellow ticket buyer Lashonda Stanley added, "I would start my own business and I would live off my fortune I wouldn't have to work anymore that would be the cool thing about it."
If their numbers don't hit, they'll probably keep playing, "the thrill of the chase the dream you know what I'm saying, to get rich people want to get rich," explained Marlin Card.
If nobody wins the prize could get up to $900 million.
