Dozens of people flocked to the California state line hoping to become the next multi-millionaire.

The Powerball jackpot has grown to $535 million since June after 19 drawings with no winner. The return on investment was enticing enough for people to drive 30-45 minutes to the Lotto Store in Primm and lining up in the heat.

The odds of someone picking the six winning numbers are one in 292 million, but hey, we can all dream right? The numbers will be announced at 8 p.m. PST.
