Mega Millions Madness



NEW YORK STATE – It seems like everyone is bracing for the Mega Millions Lottery Drawing Friday Night with the jackpot standing at a record-breaking One Billion Dollars.

This is the largest jackpot in Mega Millions history and the second-largest for any lottery ever in the United States.

The reason? There hasn’t been a winner since July 24th.



The drawing is at 11 p.m. eastern time.

The massive potential pay-out has people playing the lottery who normally might not, dreaming of what they would do with all that dough.

“There is a chance, yes. I truly believe in miracles. I believe in faith. I use faith. And the money is good,” said New York Resident Randy Jones. “Ok, and I say, ‘hey, you know what, why not give it a shot?’ Ok, hey anything over 300 million, something like that, what can you lose? Ok. Pay a few dollars, win a whole lot more.”



The Mega Millions isn’t the only big prize available for the price of a ticket.

The Powerball Jackpot now stands at 430 Million Dollars. That drawing will be Saturday.
