Residents Cross State Lines for Chance to Win Jackpot

Posted: Updated:

The chance at winning over half a billion dollars has people from all over the country flocking to stores to buy Powerball tickets.  Even right here in the panhandle cars full of Alabama residents made their way to the Florida state line for a chance to win.  But the big question is what would you do with the money if you win?  "I would see about helping the Dothan city schools and also put my girls through college and pay off all the debts and help family and friends," said Tony Jones from Dothan, Alabama.  Forty-two states participate in the Powerball lottery and if there is not a winner on Wednesday the jackpot could reach $900 million dollars.
