The Mega Millions jackpot has grown to a record size with a jackpot of $370 million. Tickets are expected to create long lines at convenience stores today.
Tonight's drawing in Atlanta has been moved and for the first time ever will be done in New York's Times Square. Virginia is one of a dozen states in the Mega Millions game.
Residents of North Carolina have swept across state lines to buy tickets to the big game in Virginia. North Carolinians are estimated to be eight to 10 percent of Virginia's lottery sales.
Odds of winning the jackpot are about one in 176 million. The nation's record jackpot for Mega Millions was $363 million shared by two winners in 2000.
