It's the third highest jackpot in Powerball history and the numbers that were drawn for the $425 million jackpot are: 05, 25, 30, 58, 59 and the Powerball: 32
People lined up over the lunch hour at the County Market Express store in West Quincy.
The store manager says it's about 50-50 as to how people pick their numbers.
Some people use the quick pick option, while others know what numbers they want.
"Of course I think a lot of people will go to work and talk about it and they'll come and we'll a lot of times get big hits, or people go in on tickets and what not," County Market Express Store Director Nick Muehring said.
The County Market Express store in West Quincy had a steady stream of customers playing the lottery and dreaming of what they would do if their numbers hit.
"Man, I couldn't even imagine, I'd probably have a heart attack and wouldn't be able to spend it," a customer with the last name Lippert said.
"Well, now, that's a good question; well, I would pay off everything I owe and go on a trip," a customer with the last name of Meginn said.
Most people would share their good fortune.
"I'd buy a cruise line and take all my friends on a cruise," someone with the last name Hively said.
"I'd share, I'd have to. One thing I'd do is get air-conditioned school buses because I'm a school bus driver," someone with the last name McAfee said.
Store Director Muehring says the higher the jackpot, the higher the ticket sales.
