SAULSVILLE - If you are feeling lucky, there is one more day to buy a lottery ticket for an estimated $400 million jackpot.

The Mega Millions Jackpot is the second largest in the game's history and the fifth-largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history. The game made changes aimed at inflating its jackpots less than two months ago.

Workers at Jason's Country Corner in Saulsville said ticket sales have been soaring there in the days leading up to the drawing. “Every time they draw, we keep seeing more and more people coming in,” explained Danny White, a cashier.

The Mega Millions jackpot will be drawn Friday at 11 p.m.
