If Santa didn't bring you want you wanted this Christmas, it's not too late to buy it yourself.

Many Georgia residents are rushing to convenient stores to purchase Lotto tickets.

The Mega Millions Lottery is up to $60 million. With the drawing Tuesday night, folks are lining up across the Peach State, hoping to purchase the winning ticket.

Not surprisingly, some residents say the more dough in the pot, the more likely they are to play.

Betty Waters said, "Twelve million would be, one million would be. Yes, it would definitely be enough to make me buy more than one ticket."

Georgia is one of 12 states selling Mega Millions tickets, Florida is not. The drawing is tonight at 11 p.m. If there is no winner the next drawing will be Friday night.
