HARRISONBURG--- Employees at a Harrisonburg Exxon station tell us that the Mega Millions tickets sold in large numbers leading up to Friday's drawing.
The unofficial winning numbers for Friday, Dec. 13, 2013: 19-24-26-27-70, Mega Ball: 12.
The lottery is often a driving force for players in the Valley when the jackpot becomes this high. Being Christmas time, many customers may be hoping to use the possible winning to buy gifts for their loved ones.
One customer told us what he would do with that much money.
"Ah, I'd use it for more than Christmas. I mean that's a lot of money. Then I'd take this cell phone and throw it away, disappear," said Winky Smith, a local plumber.
