CHAMPAIGN -- The Powerball Jackpot is the largest ever in the game's history, causing people everywhere to get in on the action. The prize is $550 million. It's no surprise people all over are trying their odds.

Some play alone, while others "carpool" and buy tickets with others. But, no matter how they play lottery sales have taken off because of the large prize. For one gas station employee it means more work.
