Tonight you could win $320 million, that's if you played the Powerball Lottery. Many Alabamians want a chance at the jackpot, and they're traveling great lengths to get it.
It's the fourth largest jackpot in Powerball history, and the second largest since 2006: $320 million, $213 million if you picked the cash option. But just because Alabama doesn't offer the Powerball, doesn't mean folks are missing out on their chance to be millionaires.
Each ticket printed at the Shell Station just over the Georgia line is a taste their dream come true.
But these folks standing here aren't from Georgia. Most of them are from our state. Some traveling as far as 80 miles to have a shot at the $320 million Powerball jackpot.
Powerball isn't legal in Alabama. In fact, no lottery is, and that's something these folks don't agree with.
"It'd be real good to bring the money for different things," says Keith Anderson from Sweetwater, Alabama.
"Our schools need the money. The tax dollars. We could use it in Montgomery," says Ella Lee from Montgomery.
And until Alabama changes it's ways, hundreds will continue to cross the border in hopes of winning it big.
"We need the money!" says Lee.
Even if their odds are 1 in 175 million. It just takes one. One ticket to strike it big.
Since Georgia started its lottery, its returned more than $13.6 billion to state education, and a lot of that money has gone to college scholarships.
As of now there's no bill proposing a lottery.
