The Mega Millions is climbing higher and higher as more and more people run out to buy a last minute ticket.

The lottery is up to $309 million. That's the ninth largest jackpot to date.
Don't bank on the cash prize though -  the odds in hitting all the winning numbers are 1 in 258 million.
But that's not stopping these Valley residents from already planning on how they'd spend their winnings.

"Go where it's warm all the time, I'm tired of this cold weather." 
"I probably invest it."
"I know a lot of people that could use it, and I wouldn't want to keep it all."
"Pay off everyone's debt, do things to help animals, and people and give to people who don't have enough money."

Remember you can catch the Mega Millions drawing on Tuesday at 11 p.m. on NBC 2, your home of the Hoosier Lottery.
