SPOKANE, Wash. -

With the Powerball jackpot reaching an all time high, people are rushing to buy tickets in hopes of becoming the next millionaire.

Friday night, the Powerball jackpot reached $600 million.  After taxes, you'd walk away with a cool $376 million; enough to fund your biggest and wildest dreams.

"Well, I would not work anymore, that would be the first thing, buy houses for everyone I know maybe open a bar," Anthony Burgess said.

Burgess bought several tickets at a downtown gas station Friday afternoon.  Even though the odds of winning aren't good, Burgess remained hopeful.

Our region is lucky when it comes to big jackpots.  In 2011, an Ephrata couple and a Rathdrum mom split a $380 Mega Millions jackpot.  In that jackpot, the Ephrata couple choose their own numbers based of their birthdays.

The drawing for the Powerball is Saturday at 8 p.m.
