Mega Millions hits fever pitch

June 19, 2003

Albany - What would you do with 180 million dollars? That's what a lot of Georgians are thinking about as they get ready to check out the winning numbers in tomorrow's Mega Million jackpot drawing. Just one dollar could win you 180 MILLION more!

That's why Latoya Ford is playing Mega Millions. She says every payday she takes her chances with the lottery.  Latoya says she normally spends at least thirty dollars on lottery tickets every week.

Odds of winning the jackpot are more than one in a million, but that one could be here in Albany. The drawing will take place Friday night at 11PM. If no one wins the jackpot, the prize will go up for Tuesday's drawing.
