ALBANY,  GA (WALB) – How would you like a $123 million Christmas present? You have a chance, a tiny one at least, if you play Mega Millions.

Tonight's lotto jackpot is up to $123 million. We found Berratta Downs at the Chevron Station on Stuart Avenue buying 10 quick pick tickets. He said he's feeling lucky and knows exactly what he'd do with the money.

"I'd just take care of my family. Wouldn't no one want for nothing and wouldn't nobody work again! That's it! Well maybe I'd start my own business or something," he said.

Several gas stations we stopped at Friday afternoon were full with people purchasing Mega Millions tickets. With the annuity option, a single winner would take home $4.7 million a year for 26 years.

The cash option is worth more than $78 million.
