New Yorkers all across the city are racing to buy their Powerball tickets as the jackpot swells to $320 million.

The prize comes less than two weeks after Staten Island resident Jin Choi claimed her $85 million Mega Millions prize.

She purchased her ticket at the World of Liquor on Staten Island.

The store's owner says it's proving to be quite the draw this time around.

"When I opened the door this morning, I had a line waiting, people waiting to play powerball. And ever since this morning it's been busy. Normally people that play $2 are playing $10," said World of Liquor Owner Renold Ruben.

The drawing is set for 11 p.m.

Your odds of winning are one in $175 million.
