Mega Million Jackpot Draws Ticket Buyers
Rochester, N.Y. - The Mega Millions Jackpot is now $636-million. It's the second highest lottery jackpot in U.S. history, and it could get even bigger, up to $1-billion if no one wins Tuesday night or on Christmas Eve.
Everyone has a strategy.
I do quick pick and my house number I play all the time, said Anthony DAngelo, who was buying a Mega Millions ticket at World Wide News in Rochester.

Change to do whatever they want with. But maybe it is that time of year, because it seems like many people are thinking more about others than themselves.
