Valdosta - Ever dream of early retirement? How about a luxury yacht? Or that dream home?

Well, six little balls could be all that stand in your way.

If those balls fall right in the Mega Millions drawing Friday night, a 330 million dollar jackpot is yours.

Although the odds of winning are one in 176 million, ticket sellers say the jackpot is creating quite a buzz and lottery hopefuls are coming in by the dozen. 

"A big upsurge in the Mega Millions sales. We've had quite a few people spending more money than they usually would. The normal one to two dollars here has turned into 10, 20, 50, 100 dollars," says Chris Ford, General Manager at Warehouse Liquor in Valdosta.

The jackpot is the second-highest on record for the 12-state game. If no one wins the drawing tonight, the jackpot is expected to grow to a record $400 million or more.
