Knoxville (WVLT) -- If you don't know, tonight's Powerball jackpot was worth $210 million.
Over the past few weeks, Powerball fever has spread from East Tennessee, to 28 more states, and Washington DC.
Lotto sellers say business has been brisk.
The higher the jackpot, the greater the sales.
"Usually when it's down there we have the regulars that come in here, but its a lot more so people have a better chance of winning," said Eric Blauvelt, who works at the BP on Merchants Drive.
The cut off to buy tickets was at 9:59.
Tonight's winning Powerball numbers were: 12-15-28-31-50-12
