People across the Valley are hoping luck will be on their side Saturday night. The fourth largest Powerball drawing in history is causing many neighbors to rush to get tickets.
$325 million is up for grabs, if you have all six numbers. Virginia state lottery officials estimate that more than two thousand tickets were sold every minute Saturday.
A lot of those could have been sold at the Royal Mart in Staunton. Employees told us people think it's good luck to get their tickets there. O over the summer, someone bought a winning scratch off there worth $20 thousand.
"Since they sold the ticket, I've seen an increase in people buying them," said Alyssa Murphy. "Especially the lower tickets, because it was a $2 ticket that won. When the Mega Million and the Powerball is really high we do sell a lot more. "
There's a good chance the Valley could be a lucky area to live. Back in May, a woman won $4 million with a ticket she bought in Waynesboro.
