Store touts previous winners ahead of big Powerball drawing

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

People are lining up all over South Georgia with hopes of winning Friday's record $800 million jackpot.

That's the biggest jackpot in its history.

If you haven't picked up your ticket, you may want to try the BP Food Mart on North Slappey Boulevard.

They tell us that they've seen at least two big winners over the past two years.

Though the odds of having the winning ticket are one out of 292 million.

The current jackpot has a cash option of $496 million.

The drawing will be Saturday night.

If nobody wins Saturday's powerball, the jackpot could increase to $1 billion.
