Powerball hopefuls flock to Glendale gas station with history of millionaires

Updated:
GLENDALE, Ariz. -

There's Powerball fever across the country and here in the valley.

The winning numbers are 22, 10, 13, 14, 52 and the Powerball is 11.

The near-record jackpot of $600 million was expected to get even bigger before Saturday night's drawing.

Your odds of winning: one in 175 million.

The latest jackpot is the biggest Powerball jackpot ever and the second largest lottery prize ever.

Does lightning strike twice? Some are hoping so.

"There's always that one chance," said Victor Valdivia.

Folks lined up at the QuikTrip at Glendale and 67th Avenues that has a history of creating millionaires.

Last year, six $1 million tickets were sold there for the same drawing.

"So now my chances might be a little bit better," said Valdivia.

"Maybe I'll be a lucky winner," said Jesse Guzman.

With $600 million up for grabs, people are clamoring to get their hands on tickets.

Friday the QuickTrip location sold over 4,000 lottery tickets. Just before 10 a.m. Saturday, they'd already sold 2,000 tickets.

With a one in 175 million chance of actually hitting the jackpot, it's the dream of becoming a multi-millionaire that sent people into stores.

"Well, gosh, I think I would probably retire at an early age and just enjoy life," said Kimberly Jones.

"I would just make sure I had enough to live the rest of my life the way I want to and the rest of it I don't care," said Joan Ryder.

"I wouldn't know what to do, there'd be so many things to do with it, I don't know," said Guzman.

Most folks know their chances are pretty low of hitting big, but most say it's all about the dream.

"Chances of winning are pretty darn slim, but hey, you don't win if you don't play. That's what they pound in your head," said Ryder.

The store had to bring in more staff to take care of the crowds.

We'll have the winning numbers are 22, 10, 13, 14, 52 and the powerball is 11.
