El Paso, TX (KTSM) — UPDATE: Winning Powerball numbers in $600 million jackpot are 22, 10, 13, 14, 52 with a Powerball number of 11.
Lottery printing machines across the nation are running on overdrive.
Forty-three states in the country are participating in the Powerball jackpot that currently sits at a whopping $600 million, and counting.
"We've been having a lot of sales since Wednesday night, since last Wednesday. Especially, after 4pm, that's when we get busier," said Paulina Torres from the Quickmart in El Paso.
It's the second largest lottery jackpot in history, and the payout could be even more than $600 million if more people buy a ticket.
"I buy them only when it's worth it. I won't spend my money if it's just $2 million or $3 million. But $600 million, I could do a lot with that," said Benjamin Bond.
With their money in hand and a dream in mind, we asked El Pasoans what they would do with the extra cash.
"Vacation, probably," said Torres.
"Start my own business, open my own shop, buy new clothes, buy whatever I want, go wherever I want," said Bond.
"We're fundraising out here for the Mini Miners. So, we wouldn't be fundraising. I'd take the team and we'd buy everybody uniforms," said Yesica Velasquez.
If you haven't yet purchased a lotto ticket, the cut-off time to buy for the Powerball is 8pm tonight.
