Albany -- Friday night 201 million dollars are up for grabs in the Mega Million lotto game. People are spending a few extra bucks in hopes of becoming the next multi-millionaire.
Trips they make to convenience stores for Mega Million tickets also mean more business for these stores.
The money for lottery tickets is also a big help to students. "I am very glad and thankful to be able to go to school for free because of the lottery," said Darton College student, Eric Klias.
"It does benefit for the college students. I guess it's a good thing. Some people only play to support the schools even if they don't win," said Flash Foods Associate, Calvin Parks.
