Albany -- You may have noticed a longer line than usual if you stopped by a convenience store Friday.

Blame Mega Millions. A lot of folks bought tickets for Friday night's $137 million jackpot that would make quite a nice Christmas present.

It's bringing extra business to many stores.

"I have a lot of people coming in through out the week. On Friday and Tuesday, when the Mega Million come out that's when its real busy. And they buy other things as well, but its real busy on the Mega Millions," said Flash Foods Clerk, Sakeyna Ledbetter.

Of course businesses aren't the only ones to benefit. Lottery proceeds fund HOPE scholarships and pre-K programs.

The winning numbers for Friday nights drawing are 4 - 30 - 7 - 17 - 12 and the mega ball number is 44.
