CHARLOTTE, NC (FOX 46 WJZY) - Mega Millions mania is sweeping the nation-- and Charlotte-- with the Tuesday night jackpot sitting at $667 million dollars.
Just $2 bucks gets you a ticket that could change your life.
Sales stopped at 10:00 p.m. and the winning numbers were drawn at 11:00 p.m. They were 69, 45, 61, 3 and 49. The mega ball was 9.
The jackpot— which has been growing since July-- is the largest in the history of Mega Millions and it has people talking.
It's easy for a lot of people playing to dream about what they would do with all that dough. FOX 46 asked people buying tickets what they would do if they won the massive millions.
“First of all I wouldn't tell anybody.”
"Maybe quit my job. It might be an early retirement for me."
"I would love to give back to the community, that's the number one thing, but definitely take a long vacation and tuition for my kids’ college."
"Definitely be taking care of my friends and family and I feel like if you have this much money you might as well put it to a good cause, but I’d actually like to disappear for a little while too."
"Take me a big long trip and give it to some charities."
The cash value is estimated at $380 dollars. If no one wins Tuesday night, the jackpot will climb to $868 million.
