Locals react to 1 billion dollar lottery jackpot


EUREKA, CA. (KIEM)-Are you trying your luck in the California Lottery? You might want too because the jackpot is at a record high. Since this morning, the jackpot has jumped from 970-million dollars, up to one-billion. This billion-dollar jackpot is the second-largest in u-s lottery history. But the urge to buy the mega millions jackpot is fairly split here on the north coast. I went around town asking folks if their playing, and what they would do if they won. Even if we won $1,000 USD from a phone casino the village would be going ecstatic! That would call for a celebration, maybe if we won the lottery, it would be slightly bigger!
