Lottery Players Hope to Win $550-million Jackpot
December 14, 2013 — Hoosier Mega Million lottery players have another chance to win a large jackpot, now more than half-a-billion dollars.
The drawing currently has a $550-million prize, increasing more than $100-million from last night’s Mega Millions jackpot numbers drawing.
A $425-million jackpot prompted many players to dream of ways to spend all that cash if they hit the jackpot. Some players who bought tickets at the Go-Lo gas station in Merrillville say they would buy homes and even travel the world.
Before purchasing their $1-tickets, some players had personal strategies to select their lottery numbers, targeting the prize.
Sandy Cooper says, “Kids ages, grand kids ages, just pop whatever pops into my head.”
Edgar Relf uses, “Birthdays, birthdays and that’s it. My kids and my grand kids birthdays.”
The next Mega Millions jackpot numbers drawing occurs Tuesday, December 17.
