DAWSON, GA (WALB) - The mega millions jackpot was up to $124 million Tuesday.

The clerk at the Dawson Food Mart told us almost every person who came in the store Tuesday bought a lotto ticket.

We spoke with some of those players who are hopeful and already have plans for how they'll spend the money if they become the next multi-millionaire.

"I'll probably buy me a house, give my church some money, and get maybe a little something for myself, and a little something for the store clerk if I win out of here," said one hopeful player.

The clerk says it gets busiest around dinner time. When the mega millions was this high last time, she said she sold one man 90 tickets.
