Its a huge multi state lottery and the jackpot is up over 600 million dollars now!!!! Quick marts and gas stations have been packed with last minute lottery ticket purchasers. I have to confess i succumbed to the lure and bought my first lottery ticket ever even though my chances of winning are all but nil!!! Everyone at work was talking about it so i just decided to do it.
