Frenzy over big Powerball jackpot

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The Powerball jackpot has again surged to a buzz worthy amount.

Wednesday's jackpot is the 6th largest jackpot of any U.S. lottery game on record and people are pouncing on the chance to win $400 million

Customers at Fuel City in Lufkin were buying anywhere from 1 to 10 tickets.

Some buy tickets frequently others were just there because the pot was so big and all are hoping luck is on their side and in their numbers.

Peggy Prinz of Huntington said this, "I bought gas and a mega million ticket. Hopefully it's the winner since I'm doing this."

James Travis of Silsbee was just passing through for work and said, "I asked the young lady who sold it to me to rub it on her forehead for luck and if I win I'm coming back to see her."

If Angelina County resident, Page Perry wins he already knows what he's going to use the money for, "Buy rattlesnake island on Sam Rayburn Dam."

You can purchase your 1 in 175 million chance to win the massive jackpot until 9:45 CST Wednesday.
