RIVERSIDE, Mo. -- Two dollars and a dream! That's all you need to change your life forever. 425 million dollars up for grabs in the Powerball jackpot.

Players like Howard Brown picked up a few tickets at the Red X in Riverside, Missouri.

"I'd help family out a little bit, purchase home, car, stuff like that." said Brown.

Quick picks are easiest way to get a ticket, but some have to choose their own numbers and everyone has a different system.

"I can never remember my wife's phone number so i'm using that as my pick, then i can't remember when i got married, so im gonna use that also as a pick." admitted Pete Vandemark.

$425 million is a life changer and everyone who buys a ticket is ready for the change. If no one wins, the new jackpot could be more than a half billion dollars.
