this morning one lady actually getting here as early as midnight to get her ticket-- which mean she waited a whooping eight hours for the store to even open. but that was the worst today-- because the longest people had to wait for a ticket...only about an hour. we spoke to many people asking them...why they waited last minute? here's what they had to say. 11:50:56-11:50:59 edward lindsey "the last day is the best day...i say you save the best for last" 11:58:29-11:58:35 "i was at work..i don't get off of work until its over with might as money...we're told you could buy this lotto store right here. even purchase the new t mobile arena along with the hockey time...but one thing you won't be able to afford-- any hotel or casino on the strip. live in primm lesley marin channel 13 action news. let toss it over to michael

lesley, i've been line hopping here in arizona to find the shortest wait. i started in kingman where there were no lines. now we're in white hills - a couple dozen miles from the border - and check out this line. i'm told the wait is about 20 minutes max - not a huge difference from the lines in primm today. people are dropping a lot of money on powerball tickets - buying them in bulk. i saw one man ealier today spend 200 dollars - hoping it will increase the chance winning - but as lesley mentioned ealier - buying more tickets will just barely increase the odds. based on what i've seen today - people are not getting the memo. "how much are people spending on a powerball ticket? $600 at a time. $400 at a time. it's crazy. what's the most you've seen someone spend? $800 cash." jennifer graffic express stop

so let's say you drop 800 dollars and you win the jackpot.. should you take the one-time cash payout - or spread it out over 30 years. a lot of people i spoke with today haven't decided. later tonight - i'll tell you what experts have to say. back to you guys in the studio. let's take a look at some of the numbers heading into tonight's drawing courtesy of by now.. you know your chance of winning is 1 in 292 million. but crunched the numbers and estimates more than 1-billion tickets will be sold for tonight's drawing. that would be a record. given all the different combinations of numbers on they say there's a 97-percent chance there will be at least one jackpot winner tonight's. so.. even with a 97-percent chance

with what opponents of the rate hike..... had to say to the commission.... during hours of public comment... this afternoon. (adlib status of meeting) opponents of the rate change got some big name help in the form of hollywood star... mark ruffalo. "this is a monumental decision you are making here. i don't thin you realize what this means to you, to your legacy. this is happening all over the united states. you are regressing." ruffalo took part in the rally ahad of the meeting. it was organized by solar city in an effort to get the commission to put the rooftop solar rate change on hold. the original decision calls for an increased service charge for rooftop solar users as well as a reduction in the amount of money homeowners are reimbursed for excess power produced by their solar arays. hundreds of people spoke before
5:13 pm
they included former employees of solar company's that have closed down operations in the state because of the change as well as upset homeowners. "how do you explain a threefold increase for basic service just because someone has rooftop solar. nv energy has not shown it is more costly for them to connect to my solar home than it is to connect to an identical non-solar home across the street. to me it does not add up." update on meeting progress. we will have the latest on the puc's decision coming up on action news at 6. reporting live, bryan callahan, channel 13 action news. adlib let's go to chief meteorologist bryan scofield and 'weather first.' several low pressure areas will
