Powerball jackpot reaches $600 million

GREENVILLE, N.C. -

$600 million, that's the current Powerball jackpot. And people are flocking to stores in the east to buy their tickets.

The estimated cash pay-out is around $377 million.

That's enough to bring out lottery hopefuls who usually don't play; many of them getting their tickets at the Sheetz gas station in Greenville.

9 On Your Side talked with one woman who's been playing for years. And she knows exactly what she'll do if she wins.

"Retire.  Fund my granddaughter's education.  Do some charity work, whatever, give my friends money too; maybe should not have said that.  I might have a lot of friends I didn't know about," laughed Eva Russell, one of many lottery hopefuls.

You can check your numbers right here on WNCT.
