Powerball mania in the East

GREENVILLE, NC (WNCT)- The largest lottery prize in nearly a year is up for grabs Wednesday night.

The Powerball Jackpot reached 500 million dollars. One local convenience store in Pitt County is known for its winning numbers. That’s where you’ll find Douglas Bullock, who says if he wins there’s a lot of people he’d share his money with.

“I got two children, two grandchildren, my wife, sisters, and brother I’m sure would want part of it. I’d spread the wealth around,” Bullock said.

The Powerball is played in 44 states, and your chances of winning are less than one in 200 hundred million.
