Nicholas LeFlem of Hopkins bought Powerball tickets at several different locations to spread his luck around.

Minnesotans chasing that sweet dream of life-changing wealth are snapping up Powerball tickets as the multistate lottery pot is projected to reach $1.2 billion by the time of Wednesday night's prize drawing.

"Sales have been through the roof," said Tomaine Grissom, a clerk at the Penn-Wood Market in Minneapolis.

"It's ridiculous," echoed a clerk at a Holiday convenience store in Plymouth, who said ticket sales have about doubled since the pot hit $700 million.
