Francine Shuty of Portage purchases what she hopes will be a few lucky Mega Millions tickets Friday from Joey Baker at Fifi’s convenience store, 14th Street and Valley View Boulevard. The jackpot hit $1 billion after no ticket matched the winning numbers in Tuesday’s drawing. While the odds of winning are 1 in 302.5 million, that didn’t stop hopeful buyers. The winning numbers in Friday night’s drawing were: 15, 23, 53, 65, 70, Mega Ball: 7, Megaplier: 2.
