WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Tonight, $337 million is at stake in the Powerball jackpot. That makes it the fourth largest in the game’s history.

The chances of winning are pretty slim: about one in 175 million. But those six little numbers have the ability to change your life, which is why so many are coming out to buy tickets.

The clerk at the Wwrightsville Country Store in Wilmington says sales have been through the roof. Yesterday, Powerball tickets out-sold MegaMillions tickets at the store two to one.

By the way, if a single winner of tonight’s jackpot takes the lump sum cash option, they would get an estimated $213.3 million.
