In order to earn a chance at the historic prize, players purchase tickets for $2 and must match all five numbers plus the Mega Ball to win the jackpot. "They are excited", said Mobil gas station manager Christina Lantto.

Mega Millions mania has swept through the country for the last few days and many folks were willing to shell out $2 a ticket for their chance at matching all six numbers. For example: in Pennsylvania, Mega Million ticket sales end at 61 minutes before the drawing - 9:59 p.m. on drawing nights. "So if I can give someone the winning ticket that would be insane". Although the chances of winning are slim, you know what they say: You can't win if you don't play.

Mega Millions is played in 44 states Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. "It's hard to overstate how exciting this is - but now it's really getting fun", (via Mega Millions). It's the biggest potential payout in the history of lotteries, eclipsing the previous record $1.586 billion Powerball prize paid out to winners in California, Florida and Tennessee back in January 2016.

"This is the winning ticket", said Robert Stout. The cash option, which is by far the most popular, is still an impressive $904 million.

But Brock said she doesn't plan on buying a ticket.

These totals will be subject to an additional state tax which will depend where you bought the ticket and/or where you reside.

"When they first opened I bought a scratch off here and it was $10,000", Beyeler said.

The store has been busy with selling tickets, and he can tell customers are excited about the possibility of winning, Patel of Peru said.

Here in CNY, many people are saying they'll be on the charitable side if they win.

"One ticket was $650,000 the one time, so lots of good lucky people", Vermac said.

"The important thing is you have to make sure that you pay attention to the inventory, and if you do that, you'll be surprised at what it'll do for you down the road", said Musto, Musto Tax and Insurance Services. He says many say go on vacation, give to family or charity.
