WHITE HILLS, AZ (FOX5) -
Wednesday's Powerball jackpot of $400 million was the sixth largest lottery jackpot in United States, but lines at Arizona's The Last Stop, 25 miles south of Hoover Dam, were steady, but not overwhelming.
"I've had people come in and say, 'It's not enough,'" said Erine Duarte of The Last Stop. "I've had people say $100 million is not enough."
$500 million is the jackpot size that will draw large crowds according to Duarte.
Some dream seekers don't require as much.
"Whenever it reaches being on the news we're like, 'Let's go.'" said Kevin Johnson of Las Vegas.
"I'll take a million or two, I will," laughed Johnson's wife Nancy Johnson.
Even when it's busy, waits at The Last Stop are no longer than 20 minutes.
On Wednesday the longest wait was five minutes, Bridget Barnes said it was even less to buy tickets for her office of 40 people.
"There are some people who don't believe, so when we come back to work and all leave at the same time they'll be stuck," said Barnes.
If you put in your $2 and didn't get anything back, don't fret, the Mega Millions drawing is Friday.
It's only $172 million however.
