WINNING NUMBERS: Powerball fever hits those hoping for a big win

Posted: Updated:

While it's possible it's not very probable that one of these two dollar tickets will change your life. Tonight's jackpot: a whopping 317 million dollars.

19 Action News Reporter Blake Chenault caught up with several people as they were about to purchase their tickets.  "Are you playing?"

"Absolutely we are in a pool," says one customer hoping for a big win.

No one cares if most of the states are playing, everyone we spoke with knows it only takes one ticket to win.

Many folks already know what they would do with the money. 

"I would get a new car and a house.  I have a nice house but I would get a new car. Chances of winning are about 1 in 175 million," says one optimistic customer.

This is the 5th 300 million dollar plus jackpot in the last 10 months.  Dreamers dream on 317 million in annuity or 176 million in cold hard cash. 

The winning Powerball numbers for Saturday, September 14, 2013 are (as drawn):

01-25-44-17-37 and the Powerball is 20.

Good luck!
