Lots of people say they'll donate to charity if they win Wednesday night's Powerball Jackpot. It sits at $500 million, the third largest jackpot in Powerball history. We stopped by a local store as people were lining up and dreaming big.
When the Powerball jackpot gets this big, the number of lottery players grows too.
People are lined up at Lewis to take a chance with all kinds of strategies to try and pick the winning numbers.
"We got the fortune cookies from the Golden Bowl just up the street last night, they have the lottery numbers I there on the fortune cookies," Gary Robinson said.
This woman is on the phone face timing her cousin to ask him what numbers to choose.
Don Jorgensen: He has the lottery numbers?
Viki: Yes, he lives in Vegas.
Don: So he has a little strategy maybe?
A lot of people tell us they aren't sure what they'd do with $500 million dollars, but they are sure of one thing, they're dreaming big.
"I look at athletes and celebrities on TV and just think that's a different universe they live in and that would be something," Robinson said.
Of course a lot of people like to play at work with an office pool, we'll take 29 tickets please.
Chances of winning the lottery are not good, but that doesn't stop people from playing.
Don: Do you have the winning numbers?
Loni: I sure hope so, but I don't know, we'll find out.
There's even a plastic penny tray on the counter from the South Dakota Lottery that says a 'penny for your dreams.'
It's empty, so that can only mean one thing, a lot of people are dreaming today.
