ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Are you feeling lucky? If so, you might want to pick up a lottery ticket Friday night.

The Mega Millions Jackpot has jumped up to $333 Million. In just a couple of hours, this BP station in Albany sold more than 500-tickets for tonight's drawing. The jackpot was estimated to be around $325 Million, but brisk ticket sales bumped up the prize.

If one person wins the drawing, they could take home a lump sum of $210 Million before taxes.

Bhavna Ray said, "People are going crazy to buy. We put the signs on the front door and everywhere and that's why."

Anthony Mosley said, "I just going to take a chance on getting one ticket today. I don't normally play at all. I'm just taking a chance." "And you only bought one ticket?" "I only bought one ticket, like I said, it only takes one to win."

It's a long shot. Odds of hitting all the numbers are one in 175-million. Mega Millions is played in 12 states.

For your chance to win the $333-Million jackpot, you must purchase your ticket by 10:45 PM Friday.
