ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Most of us have imagined what it would be like if we won the lottery, but Tuesday's jackpot prize is hard to even wrap your mind around. 

The Mega Millions prize is at a whopping $330 Million.  If there is a single winner, it will be the largest lottery payout to one person in U.S. history.

Larry Clark doesn't typically play Mega Millions, but he couldn't pass up the chance to try for such a huge jackpot.  He says if he wins, he'll simply enjoy a life of luxury and leisure.  He said, "I'd stop work immediately.  I'd just give everybody what they want and tell them to leave me alone."

The drawing for the mega jackpot is Tuesday night at 11.  Your odds for picking all the right numbers are pretty slim... about one in 176 Million.
