Lottery mania is taking over southern West Virginia.
Thousands of lottery tickets were sold at various stores across the area. Customers lined up and waited, at one point machines were at a grid lock but, things were back up and running a couple hours later. A chance at an estimated $636 MILLION was too good for lottery hopefuls to pass up.
"We went down the street and try it. The satellite was down, so we used this as a last resort and it worked out"
One week ago the mega million was more than 400 MILLION. If no one wins from tonight's drawing, it might take on a new name - mega billion!
