Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Once again, soaring Powerball numbers have lottery hopefuls flocking to get their hands on a ticket.

The $360 million jackpot is the third largest in Powerball history.

At Petro-Serve USA on University and I-94, ticket sales are on pace to double from Tuesday. But they say it doesn't yet compare with November's record $588 million jackpot frenzy.

Hans Swanson, Store Manager: "Then, you couldn't do a sale without selling a lottery ticket. But here it's a little slower, but still a lot more than usual, cause who wouldn't want to win all of that money? I mean, you can't win if you don't play."

The Powerball drawing is tonight at 10 o'clock.
