IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI) - One of the largest jackpots in U.S. history will grow even larger since there was no winner for Friday's drawing of the Mega Millions' $750 million top prizes. People in the area have caught the lottery fever.
The mega-million jackpot has spiked to 850 million dollars. The Powerball has gone up to 640 million dollars.

The odds of winning are one in 292.2 million. and locals are taking in those odds.
"A lot of money would be nice. I first thing I would do is give some of it to charity," said Kim Hillman of Idaho Falls.
Mega millions estimated its next top prize would be $850 million, which would be the third-largest of all time.
The drawing is on Tuesday.
