Houstonians are dreaming of how they would help themselves and others with a Powerball jackpot win.

Someone's life may have just changed because of these numbers: 47-02-63-62-11 PB: 17

Those are the winning digits for tonight's Powerball jackpot, which sits at more than an estimated $500 million. If there's a winner tonight, that person could walk away with more than $275 million in cash.

How likely is that to actually happen? Lottery officials put your odds of matching all five numbers and the Powerball at 1 in 292 million.

To put that in perspective, you're more likely to be killed by a shark or struck by lightning this year.

The odds certainly don't serve as a deterrence at Rudy's Stop & Shop in Rosenberg. The store claims to sell the most winning tickets in the state. Lottery players like Joe Villegas told Eyewitness News he'd buy a truck if he won and surprise others.

"Help out those waitresses. Go out and surprise people," said Villegas. "Give them a big surprise. Help them out."

The biggest jackpot ever was a $656 million "Mega Millions" back in 2012.

The Powerball drawing is tonight.
