Preparing for a Huge Powerball Jackpot

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.  --  The powerball jackpot jumped from $305 to $320 million last night, leading to the second largest jackpot in Washington state history. People from all around the area are heading to their local retailer to buy tickets. Some are even changing their route to work...to stop by Pik-A-Pop in Kennewick, recently named one of the luckiest stores in the state.

"Well I did hear about the big number down here and this location's got quite a few winners behind its history, I guess. And so instead of go to my normal place thought that I would give a new place a try," said Marty Martin.

The drawing will be held at eight p.m. the big winner won't be the only one winning cash, the lottery will also pay a $50,000 bonus to the retailer who sells the winning ticket.
