Lottery hopefuls playing for large jackpot

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) -Lotto fever is spreading across the commonwealth as we head to this second weekend of 2021.

The Virginia Lottery estimates the Mega Millions jackpot will be $520 million for Friday, January 8. The Powerball jackpot will be at $470 million for Saturday’s drawing.

So, what would you do if you hit the those winning numbers?

“Pay off bills, buy a house, buy a car, fix my parents house, and then split the rest of the money between me and my three kids,” Jerrica Hartman said.

“If I win, I’m going out of town. I’m going to Bahamas,” Cyrus Toliver said.
