-----------------------------------------

People all over the country, including right here in Michiana are anxiously awaiting the results of Wednesday night's Powerball numbers. The jackpot has reached an estimated $500 million dollars.

That's the largest jackpot in Powerball history and second largest jackpot in lottery history. The cash option is worth $327.4 million dollars.

One gas station in Michiana wants to make sure people in the area get the chance to get in on the fun. So they decided to give away free tickets. Starting at 6 a.m. Wednesday you can pick up a free Powerball ticket at the McClure station at 6220 U.S. 31 South in South Bend. They say they will give away 500 tickets throughout Wednesday.

FOX 28 was at the station when it opened and there were plenty of people already in line.

"I wanted to be the first one to get it," said Bernard Broadway, who got up early to make sure he was the first in line for a free ticket and he's pretty sure his is the winner.

"Of course it's going to be a blessing to me, so I'm going to give that blessing back to someone else."

Lottery officials were on hand at the gas station to help pass out the free tickets.

"I think it's great. I hope we give away the free ticket that wins it all today," said store manager Jackie Ostrega.
