“I've been here selling a lot of MegaMillion tickets and its booming just like the oilfield, the lottery is booming,” said 7-11 Assistant Manager, Lakisha Ephraim.
The current MegaMillions jackpot is worth over half a billion dollars, and is 2nd highest jackpot in American history, which has some Midlanders making interesting plans if they ended up winning.
“Actually I’d probably go crazy i would probably just have a heart attack and die right then and there,” said Midlander, Ronnie Snyder.
“First I’d pay off some of the fines I have out there for some tickets, but other than that take care of my family,” said Michiganite, Anthony Whitman.
One Midlander we spoke to said he wouldn’t need that many millions.
“I just want one; I’m good with just one, that’s a lot of money,” said Ronnie Snyder.
There seemed to be common formula when it comes to increasing your odds of winning.
“Pray to god, hopefully he lets me win this,” said Anthony Whitman.
“Just pray about it, that’s all you can do,” said Ronnie Snyder.
“I just leave it up to the good lord, that's it,” said Midlander, John Hernandez.
Even with such a huge prize to be won, all the lottery players i spoke to, had sportsmanship
“I just wish everybody good luck on it and hopefully it goes to the one who deserves it the most,” said John Hernandez.
