The Powerball Jackpot has reached $570 million. Folks are very excited.

According to the insurance company Allstate, your chances of winning the Powerball are about 1 in 290 million, and the likelihood of you taking home the Mega Millions are roughly 1 in 258 million.

"Sales are definitely higher, and we've seen this in the past when jackpots start ticking up sales definitely tick up as well and that's exciting for everybody", said Cindy Polzin with the Wisconsin Lottery.

"I got the hope and belief in Jesus, so I know I got to have the winning ticket for tonight", says Vincent Sanders.

"You would stop and pause and look", said Thompson.

Van Denton, spokesman for the N.C. Education Lottery, said big jackpots for the two games tend to see-saw.

The winning numbers for the Mega Millions are announced Friday night.

And even if they do know, people often don't bother to check their tickets once they hear there was no jackpot victor or the winning ticket was bought out of state.

"I can take care of my family", added Wright.

If Lynn does win, she plans to use the money for good. Lottery retailers saying that's prompting many players to put down money on both. "If I win, I will tell my kids and grandkids I won, and then I'm out of here!" "And we've got this special $5 bundle - the "5 buck bundle.' If you go in and ask for a '5 buck bundle", you get one of all three ticket, the NSJ ticket being free". Most winners opt for cash options, which would be $281 million for Mega Millions and $358.5 million for Powerball.

"We have at least 11 Powerball Millionaires in Arkansas".

Jimmy Kied has never sold a jackpot winning ticket at Gabe Mart on Jones Franklin Road in Raleigh, but the store has sold several tickets that won smaller prizes, he said.

But the odds of winning?

"It's fun to play", said May.
