With the Powerball jackpot reaching an all time high, people are rushing to buy tickets in hopes of becoming the next millionaire.
Friday night, the Powerball jackpot reached $600 million.� After taxes, you'd walk away with a cool $376 million; enough to fund your biggest and wildest�dreams.
"Well, I would not work anymore, that would be the first thing, buy houses for everyone I know maybe open a bar," Anthony Burgess said.
Burgess bought several tickets at a downtown gas station Friday afternoon.� Even though the odds of winning aren't good, Burgess remained hopeful.
Our region is lucky when it comes to big jackpots.� In 2011, an Ephrata couple and a Rathdrum mom split a $380 Mega Millions jackpot.� In that jackpot, the Ephrata couple choose their own numbers based of their birthdays.
The drawing for the Powerball is Saturday at 8 p.m.
