$1 billion Powerball jackpot creating buzz at Philadelphia store where others have won

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — The thought of winning Monday’s $1 billion Powerball jackpot got lottery players buying tickets at a Philadelphia store where people won various amounts.

“Who knows what a girl could do with a billion dollars, but I like it,” said lottery player Pat Pollard.

Pollard then had an idea.

“I think if I won, the first thing I would do is buy a house — well, let’s say another house and move,” Pollard said.

The jackpot comes with a $497 million cash option. The money would certainly change lives.

“I’m going to have a kidney transplant on Thursday, so I’m a pretty lucky guy, so maybe I could have a little bit more luck,” lottery player Don Harmer said as he held up his tickets.

Harmer and other customers of Posh Fuel and Food at 8901 Ridge Avenue in Roxborough said they hope for better luck shopping at the store.

“I come here all the time for my gas and tickets. You don’t always win, but you have to play to win,” Harmer said.

One lucky person won $150,000 at Posh in July playing the Powerball Power Play.

It’s possible to win smaller amounts, but the odds of hitting the big Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292 million, according to lottery officials.

“$1 billion! If I have the money – retire,” said Powerball hope Nora Gaiser.

The next Powerball jackpot drawing will take place on Monday at 10:59 p.m
