Powerball customers come out in droves

CORDELE, GA (WALB) -

What would you do with $320 million?

That's a question some lucky person may get to answer.

That's what Wednesday's Powerball jackpot was up to since nobody has won since June 23rd.

We were at this Sunoco station in Cordele Wednesday afternoon as people rolled in hoping to buy the winning ticket.

The owner says if the jackpot rolls over again, he may need to bring in extra employees to handle all the lottery players.

"If it does like the last time it got up, I actually had to bring in extra help to cover it. People who usually don't buy lottery tickets, buy lottery tickets. We're probably double on what we do on a regular day," said Sunoco Owner Joe Waldrip.

The winning numbers are 56-27-46-6-51 and the Powerball 21.
