MIDDLETON, Tenn. (WTVA) -- You have a better chance at getting struck by lightning than winning the lottery.
But that didn't stop Mississippians from crossing the state line into Tennessee hoping to win big on Wednesday's nearly $580 million Powerball jackpot.
Caldwells Convenience in Middleton, Tennessee, was busy most of the day as people lined up to buy a chance at millions of dollars.
Owner Sue Rainey said it's been crazy busy.
"We opened at six in the morning. There was somebody at the door wanting in before we actually opened the door," said Rainey.
Rainey said a jackpot of this size brings out a lot of first timers.
"A bunch of faces I never saw before," Rainey said.
Like Brandi Simmons and Stacie Yates of Mississippi. They bought four tickets.
"This is our first time ever playing. We don't know what's going on. We were watching TV and saw it, so we had to come and see," said Yates.
First timer Barbara Jefferies, also of Mississippi, bought one ticket.
"Since it's so high today, I stopped. But I usually don't buy them," Jefferies said.
If you bought a ticket, here are the winning numbers: 5, 16, 22, 23 and 29 with the Powerball of 6.
