Mega bucks for jackpot winner

February 23, 2007

Albany -- Many Georgians are looking to get mega-rich off the Mega Millions jackpot.

As of Friday night the jackpot rolled up to $177 million, attracting a lot of lottery players. Convenience store workers say they've been swamped with customers trying to get rich quick.

"A lot of people are coming in getting $10, $15, $20 worth at one time. Then we've got some customers coming in buying a couple at a time and stuff. It only takes one chance to play it for one dollar in order to see if you're going to be $177 million dollars richer in the morning," said Debra Edwards.

If no one wins this jackpot next Tuesdays jackpot could be worth $200 million.
