KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A lot of people took a chance at becoming a millionaire on Saturday. The Powerball jackpot was an estimated $305 million.

Customers lined up at Red X in Riverside on Saturday. Business at the lottery counter was a little busier than usual because of the amount of money on the line. Customer Cindy Diehl says she only plays the lottery when the jackpot seems worthy. For her, that means over $100 million.

Another customer, Clester Thompson believes playing the Powerball is more than just walking up and asking for a computer ticket.

"I have a wheeling system i use that i picked up from the computer," Thompson said.

The first numbers are all the same but the 5th and Powerball change.

"I have won some money on it," he said.

Thompson said he'd help others if he won.

"Yeah, I would help a lot of family members and then put it in the bank for my grand kids," he said.

Saturday's winning numbers were 4, 13, 39, 46, 51 and the Powerball was 1. Click here for the Powerball website.
