BROOK PARK, OH (WOIO) -

It's been growing for weeks and now the Powerball jackpot is at a whopping $317 million.

Everyone knows the chances but  people are still having fun at least dreaming of a win.

Jason Botsford goes through his daily lottery ritual with Ellie Morgan at the most popular Shell Gas Station in Brookpark. Loyal lottery players claim this is the luckiest place around. So 19 Action News went there looking for the winners - and of course those looking to buy a winning Powerball ticket.

"The most I've won is $500. I recently won a couple hundred dollars," said Jason Botsford.

People come from near and far for this.

"Here we go. Watch. Crash! That means we're done. Everybody usually claps and says thank God they're done," said Debbie Osterman, She's won $100 thousand once.

"I was like, oh my God! Oh my God! Of course Uncle Sam took his fair share but I didn't care. After taxes it was 68 thousand dollars - I was happy," added Debbie.

The biggest winner to come out of here. Someone who shared a $12 million jackpot. Owner Bill Primus gets a piece of that but nothing like the actual jackpot. He says he never wins much.
