CHICAGO – Lottery fever has hit the Chicago area as the Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots have climbed to a total over $1 billion.
The Mega Millions jackpot has reached $750 million after no one matched all the winning numbers on Tuesday night. Someone in Chicago did win a million dollars, prompting many residents to visit the Roscoe Village 7-Eleven it was sold at.
“2021, it’s a new year, obviously feeling lucky,” said Mike Lima. “I’ll donate some to charity, buy a house, take care of my wife.”
The Powerball has reached $640 million after no one won in its last drawing.
The Mega Millions winning numbers will be revealed Friday night and the Powerball numbers will be revealed on Saturday.
