OKLAHOMA CITY -

Powerball madness hits Oklahoma with the jackpot reaching a whopping $600-million and that's got lotto fever at a fever pitch.

Lines were out the door all day at gas stations like the Valero on Kelly Ave., packed with Powerball players hoping to hit the jackpot.

"The line would not go down for 2 hours, so i was here for 2 hours ringing up Powerball," said Valero cashier, Lorena.

"If you don't have a ticket, you don't have a chance, so you can't win if you don't have a horse in the race," said Powerball hopeful, Anthony Black.

It was a race to the register as Oklahomans braced fierce lines to buy $2 Powerball tickets with hopes of striking it rich.

"Who wouldn't be excited to wake up a millionaire?" said Black.

The jackpot is up to $600-million, driving many to buy multiple tickets to better their odds.

"All these people are buying $30 and $40 worth of tickets, you never know...just with my measly $6, I might be the number one," said Powerball player, Brittany Height.

Marliene Allen bought five tickets using her family's birthdays for numbers.

"I've been playing these same number for years. One day I'm going to hit it," said Allen. "I hope it's a good chance. I'm looking at it. I'll be watching it tonight."

One couple bought $200 worth of tickets Saturday morning, that's the most sold here. There was a steady flow of people right up until the cut off at 9 p.m.

And those winning Powerball numbers were 22-10-13-14-52 and the Powerball number is 11.
