SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - There has been a steady stream of people at Palmer Market in Sarasota on Tuesday and at stores throughout the Suncoast. They are all hoping of hitting Tuesday’s $785 million jackpot.

The last time someone won the Mega Millions was in the middle of October. The cash option is around $404 million. This has many people dreaming big.

“Get a house, buy my daughter’s house and give money to her,” said Dee Karacia, a Sarasota resident.

“I’ve got three wonderful kids and I would definitely help them out, buy them some homes, do a little traveling,” said Donna Molay, Manager of the Palmer Market. “Pretty much what everybody dreams of is to kick back, relax and kind of help each other.”

The odds of winning the Mega Millions jackpot are 1 in about 302 million.

The drawing is taking place Tuesday night around 11 p.m.
