Mega Millions jackpot jumps to $667 million

ARDMORE, Okla. (KXII) - "Of course be debt free, retire and travel," Lottie Jones said.

"I would definitely have to quit my job and just have fun with my kids and my family," Amantha Moore said.

"Maybe share a little but spend a lot - that's it," Terry Fleck said.

That's what locals in Ardmore told us how they would spend their earnings if they won the Mega Millions jackpot.

The value for the Mega Millions drawing Tuesday is now at $667 million.

The jackpot has been increasing since late July.

It's the third largest lottery prize in U.S. history and an all time high for the jackpot that costs just $2 for a chance to win.

"It's $2 - it's $667 million why not take a chance," Amantha Moore said.

Amantha Moore is a clerk at the fuel stop and says she's seen dozens of people come in to by a ticket.

She even bought one herself.

"And I hope I did sell the winning ticket cause I tried to tell everyone I want half if they win," Moore said.

Other people we spoke to found time to stop by to get their tickets, even one man who was on his way to Tulsa.

"You don't try you can't win, it's very simple," Fleck said.

"I want a chance just like everybody else," Jones said. "I only bought one and sometimes that's all it takes is just that one ticket."

The estimated cash value is $380 million.

The chances of getting a jackpot are 1 in 302, 575, 350.

If there is no jackpot winner Tuesday night the estimated value for the next drawing will roll to $868 million.

The drawing will take place Tuesday night at 10 p.m.

If no one wins, the next drawing will be Friday.
