Local News

ZANESVILLE, Ohio – If you’re feeling lucky there is always the option of buying the Powerball or Mega Million tickets.

The Mega Million was drawn on the night of Tuesday, October 16th and there was no winner so the prize went up to $868 Million and the Powerball drawing is $345 Million. Jimmy Pitcock, Owner of Mother Tuckers, said it’s always a random group of people in some state but you never know.

“It’s been a long time since anyones hit the Mega or the Powerball so tonight will be Powerball and then Friday will be Mega and it gets everybody excited, it’s been quite awhile since anybody hit it,” Pitcock said.

This Mega Millions is the second largest U.S. lottery prize ever. Pitcock said people feel great even just winning a small amount from the different lottery tickets he sells.

“Seems like it happens about once a year and it gives everyone something else to talk about, something else to do. So usually you see people pull together at their office wherever they work and get out to get them just to give them a shot,” Pitcock said.

They get a pretty good amount of people going into Mother Tuckers to buy tickets. He said all you need to bring is yourself, an ID and have your money ready to purchase the tickets and they will try to help as much as they can.
