Powerball Potential

March 15, 2008, 6:11 PM by Kari Kintner

Powerball Potential
Many people in Sioux Falls felt lucky Saturday. The Powerball lottery reached a $275 million jackpot. That had people lining up in gas stations and grocery stores.

The Powerball jackpot hasn't been this high since last year when an Indiana winner took home more than $300 million dollars. With the current jackpot at more than a quarter million, plenty of people in Sioux Falls are excited.

Milk, pop, chips, and a lucky ticket. 

"I keep bettin' that maybe I'll hit the big one," Don Nygaard said.

People at HyVee in Sioux Falls are shopping for groceries, and a chance to strike it rich. 

"Needed a few things and I definitely needed a new lottery number," Darrell Kryger said.
 
"I'm pretty much like everyone else, hoping to win the big ticket and not have to work for the rest of my life," Byron Dietsch said.
 
If someone picks the lucky Powerball numbers tonight, they take home $275 million. For many, that made standing in line worth the wait. 

"It's worth a lot!" Kryger said.

"I looked at the numbers and went wow! I'm gonna buy a lottery ticket today!" Tammy Kingsley said.

One dollar is all it takes to win a lot of cash. 

"You're looking at over $100 million after taxes," Dietsch said.
 
And that has many people dreaming. 

"I'd buy me a house and a pink four-wheeler I want," Kingsley said.

"We'd make sure our immediate families would be taken care of," Dietsch said.
 
And others claim to have noble motivations. 

"Clear up my bills far as they'd go," Nygaard said.
 
"I'd go and buy me a job!" Kryger said.
 
For these people, spending a little impulse cash is just a small cost. 

"One dollar chance in winning a bunch is always worth it," Kryger said.
 
"I spend a lot more than that on just sodas during the week, so five dollars for this once in a great while isn't that big of a deal. When the numbers get bigger you take the chance," Dietsch said.

"This could be it, you never know!" Kingsley said.

They hope a few dollars and a lot of luck could go a long way.

The winning numbers are drawn just before 10 p.m. on Saturday.
