Powerball Frenzy Strikes SoCal

At one of the top three places in the state to buy a lottery ticket, Blue Bird Liquor in Hawthorne, some hopefuls stood in line for several hours before Saturday’s $600 million Powerball drawing. Reggie Kumar reports from Hawthorne for Today in LA Weekend on May 18, 2013.

As the Powerball jackpot grows to an estimated $600 million before Saturday night's drawing, Southern Californians are talking about the dream of owning the sole winning ticket.

The drawing is at 7:59 p.m. PT, and the cut-off time to buy a ticket is 7 p.m. Drawings are held every Wednesday and Saturday, according to the California Lottery.

California joined the Powerball club in December so Southern Californians can now find tickets wherever Super Lotto or Mega Million tickets are sold.

For those wondering how to get in on the buzz, California Lottery officials list their lucky retailers.

The list includes 33 area convenience stores stretching from Ventura through Los Angeles to Riverside and San Bernardino counties that have a history of selling winning tickets.

Scroll down to the bottom of this story for the complete list of winning lottery stores in the area.

As for this week’s Powerball jackpot, lottery officials say the prize is growing quickly because so many people have been purchasing the $2 tickets.

The jackpot has grown by an estimated $236 million since Wednesday’s drawing.

The last jackpot was won on March 30, so it's been growing for about six weeks. The next drawing is Saturday night.

The largest jackpot ever was a $656 million Mega Millions prize won in March 2012. The prize was split three ways with winners in Illinois, Kansas and Maryland.

Odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are about 1 in 175 million.
