People around southeast Missouri lined up at gas stations and other stores to purchase tickets for the Mega Millions lottery. The prize is currently set at $224 million.
"I can't even imagine that much money," said Rick Hartle, of Cape Girardeau. "I would pay off my debt and my family's debt and travel and live a nice life. I'd probably also buy or build a nice house somewhere right here in the area."
The drawing is Friday, October 24 at 10 p.m. Central Time.
