Ohio Valley stimulus checks hoping to score the Mega Millions


Most of us have a new chunk of change to... stimulate the economy

Ohio Valley residents are putting in their $600 stimulus checks and hoping to pull out $447-Million. That is what the Mega Million jackpot is currently at Tuesday and Wednesday’s Powerball at $410-M.

Been coming in one after another. I think a lot of people have a little bit extra stimulus money and they might be trying to catch up from their past losses. But we’ve got all the winners here.

A combined $857-M has the Ohio Valley on its toes. Tuesday’s pot sits as the 10th largest in the game’s history. 

People that usually spend one or two are getting five or 10, and it’s normally like that when the pot gets this high.

Mega Millions and Powerball tickets are $2 each. Something most are willing to cough up. 

People pulling up to the window to buy tickets at Neely’s will balance groceries in the other hand, so it’s already a win-win scenario for the Wheeling hub. 

But, in terms of hitting big… well, knock on wood, it might be the Ohio Valley’s turn. 

“We’re due for a big winner,” said Miller.

Costumers in line that won smaller lots, put that change right back into buying numbers for these Mega Millions. 

This is the third time that both games have simultaneously had jackpots larger than $400-M.
