MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

With the Powerball jackpot reaching an estimated $700 million, lines are forming outside Naifeh's in Munford, Tennessee.

Naifeh's is the store that sold a winning Powerball ticket in January 2016 when the jackpot reached its record-breaking amount of $1.5 billion.

Bonnie Miller was working at Naifeh's when the lottery announced that the store sold one of the winning tickets.

"People were everywhere. I mean, in the parking lot, in the store, and that went on for like two weeks afterward," Miller said.

With the Powerball hysteria ramping back up, people are turning out to Naifeh's again, hoping good luck can strike twice.

"I passed by the counter and said, 'Let me just try. Maybe my luck will change,'" Larry Redfield said.
