Locals get swept up in $400M Powerball mania


At the Shell station by Exit 4 in Londonderry, a clerk who didn’t want to give her name said she had sold eight chances in the first few minutes of her afternoon shift.

Over at Don’s Market in Hampstead, clerk Nancy Muise said Powerball business will only get better. “Tomorrow it will be busy,” she said.

Some shoppers were unaware of the big jackpot.

“I will definitely get one,” Kayla Green of Londonderry said after being told a chance would get her a shot at $400 million.

“I probably will play,” Mark Johnston of Londonderry said, acknowledging he is an irregular player but wasn’t yet in tonight’s drawing.
