PEORIA – Friday the 13th is a day of superstition for some, but others in central Illinois are feeling especially lucky. The Mega Millions Jackpot has been bumped to $425 million. This is the largest jackpot since last year’s $656 million dollar prize which was won by a couple right here in Illinois. Players out shopping for tickets Friday say they hope to get the same result.
Tonice Bridgeport says, "Today is 12-13-13 and I feel the odds are going to be reversed. And I feel kind of lucky about that number today."
Danny Spiller says, "You never know what will happen. That's why I feel lucky, Friday the 13th and the 425 million. That will change a lot of people's lives."
The drawing for the big jackpot is tonight so be sure to get your ticket today.
