$320 Million Powerball Jackpot Draws Last-Minute Customers

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) -- The winning Powerball numbers are 17, 29, 31, 52, 53, Powerball: 31.

$320 million is up for grabs in Saturday's Powerball lottery drawing and people across Mid-Michigan and the country were buying tickets up to the last minute hoping to striking it rich.

Goodrich's Shop Rite in East Lansing had their share of dreamers today. Cashier Missy Pittman says dozens of people bought Powerball tickets.

"I've been getting a lot of people wanting multiple tickets," she said.

Gas stations and party stores in the area saw customers snatch up tickets too.

Chris Elliott walked into Tom's Party Store with some positive vibes.

"My birthday was two days ago, my team is doing good, I've been doing good on tests, just a lot of things rolling so maybe they'll roll into this Powerball ticket," said Elliott.

Chris Dailey bought his ticket at the Sunoco gas station off Dunckle Road in Lansing. If he wins, he says he'llpay off all his debt, buy a car, and a house.

The lump-sum cash pay out option is $198.3 million.

This is the game's sixth largest jackpot in its history.
