KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Prior to Saturday's $600 million Powerball jackpot drawing, people in Knoxville were talking about how they would spend that kind of money if they were to win.

"I'd buy my mom a home. My mom is 84 and she works hard, so she deserves it," said Michael Ramsey, Sr.

Woodland Mart and Deli says the days leading up to the drawing were unbelievably busy.

"Usually we get very few people buying it, but when it gets up real high, then we get a whole lot of people buying it, spending a lot of money," said Woodland employee Michelle Blalock.

In fact, the store sold more than 700 tickets by 8 p.m. the day of the drawing.

Not everyone said they would keep the money if they were to win.

"There's so many good things that could be done in this area. A lot of places need donations for food, animal shelters, things like that," said Powerball player Amy Vaulton.

But even charitable players say they'll splurge on a little something for themselves.

"Get a pedicure maybe. Take my kids for a long vacation, that's about it," said Mary Graham.

The winning numbers for the May 18, 2013 drawing were 22 - 10- 13 - 14 - 52 - (11).
