Feeling Lucky? Ohioans Buy More Lottery Tickets as Jackpots Rise

Feeling Lucky? Ohioans Buy More Lottery Tickets as Jackpots Rise

"I play when it gets real high, say at least $200 million or so!" said retired doctor Fred Loeb of Kansas City.

It's been the first time in in history both major nationwide lottery jackpots are above $400 million at the same time.

The Arkansas Powerball is up to $570 million and counting.

"You would stop and pause and look", said Thompson.

And even if they do know, people often don't bother to check their tickets once they hear there was no jackpot victor or the winning ticket was bought out of state.

The Mega Millions drawing will be tonight, January 5th, 2017, at 10 p.m.

"I bought 20-something dollars worth of merchandise", he said as he held a brown bag of items he picked up while across the state line.

The storm is expected to pass quickly through the emerald isle before hitting Britain, where winds can be expected to hit 80mph. Forecasters say some coastal areas could be affected by large waves as it combines with a period of high tides.

"We have had significant jumps in the jackpots over the past couple of days, which is something we don't really see at midweek increase", said Chris Rogers, the deputy director of products and marketing for the Arizona Lottery.

"90 percent of it I would give away". That's a lot of money. "'I won?! No! I didn't!' Of course there would be a jubilation".

"I don't play much, but when the number is this big, I'll take a chance", added Singh.

"One goes way up, and somebody wins it, and it starts over, and then the other jackpot goes up", he said. We don't always hit the jackpot, but we did once in Arkansas.

The jackpot for the Mega Millions lottery game has climbed to $450 million, just hours before the drawing.

If no one gets the winning numbers, it will roll over and could reach $720 million.

You probably can't, but unfortunately, you probably also won't get the chance to, especially if you're shooting for the moon and hoping to win both the Powerball and the Mega Millions.
