ALBANY,  GA (WALB) - Nobody won the Mega Millions lottery drawing Tuesday night, so Friday's jackpot will be the fifth-largest in Georgia lottery history.

The jackpot skyrocketed to $325 million. 75-year-old Sam Brown hopes he'll be the winner.

He says his daughter encouraged him to buy a ticket for the first time in his life.

"Well this is the first time I've ever bought a ticket. So if I win all this money, I'm going to give it away. So if I win, all ya'll start looking for me, because I'd love to give it to ya'll to see ya'll smile," said Brown.

He also promised me he'd take me to lunch if he wins.

Sam Brown only bought one ticket today because he says after all it only takes one to win.
