The Mega Millions jackpot has reached nearly $350 million and people are taking their chances.

Local lottery outlet Fat Jacks Pizza is seeing steady customers with the Mega Millions at such a high number. 

Mega Million tickets are $1 each and can be played in 44 states. The drawing is tonight (8/8/17) at 11 p.m. 

The Powerball has also reached over $300 million. That drawing will take place Wednesday. 

"Everybody wants to jump in. Most people are after the big jackpot, but we're just doing it based on hope. Everybody hopes to win, but if they don't we joke about it and laugh about it." said Cindy Reames, a cashier at Fat Jack's pizza place and lottery outlet. 

"If I do get lucky, I'm gonna have a whole lot of people sharing in my wealth, too. The name of the game is to give to the people that don't have anything," said Larry Corso of Lima who bought his ticket Tuesday.

The chances of hitting the mega million? Less than your chances of being drafted to play in the NBA.
