A store clerk at the Hud's station in Grady County says they've been selling Lottery tickets through the roof. She adds that sales are expected to increase Thursday and Friday as the drawing nears.
Lotto players from Georgia and Florida are buying tickets and even some from as far as Alaska.
Tina Veldkamp, a Lotto player from Alaska, says, "I'm from Alaska and we don't have a lottery in Alaska, so I thought I'd take a chance and see what happens. I'm not expecting anything, but it's always fun to play."
The Georgia Mega Millions drawing for $88 million will be this Friday at 11 p.m.
