Mega Millions Numbers Drawn
COLUMBUS (Ben Garbarek) -- The winning numbers for the Mega Millions are in.
The numbers are: 8, 14, 17, 20, 39, with a Mega Ball Number of 7.
There is $636 million on the line. Convenient stores were busy all day with people trying to get their chance to strike it rich.
"I've never bought a lotto ticket before," said Joe Tanoury. "Yeah ($636 million) is enough. That'd lay for my student loans."
Thurber Market in Victorian Village said it did nearly ten times the amount of lotto ticket sales Tuesday than it does on a normal day.
The odds aren't great to win the jackpot. There's a 1 in 293 million chance of winning the big payday.
"Your chances of winning are probably much, much less than you getting struck by lightning twice in a row on the at to pick up the cash prize," said Bill Notz, a statistics professor.
If no one wins Mega Millions Tuesday night, the jackpot goes up to $950 million.
