Knoxville (WVLT) -- If those lines looked at little longer at the filling station or convenience store, that's because Saturday night's Powerball jackpot was at $161 million.

The cut off to buy a ticket was at 9:59 PM, but a lot of your neighbors already had their tickets several hours ahead.

"I think 100 million is the mark," said Jada Fanning who is a clerk at the Shell station on Kingston Pike. "A lot of people tell me they won't play unless it's up passed 100 million. When it hit 400 million, I had lines back to the cooler."

Fanning said she also sold triple the number of Powerball tickets as she would on a typical weekend.

Here were the Saturday night winning numbers from the Tennessee Lottery.

Midday Cash 3: 9-3-8
Evening Cash 3: 5-9-8
Midday Cash 4: 4-8-2-5
Evening Cash 4: 3-1-9-7
Powerball: 1-10-11-37-40-20
