Friday's jackpot of $500 million is the largest in the history of the game.
HOLLAND, Mich. (WZZM) -- With the Mega Millions jackpot at $500 million, people who would not normally play the lottery are buying tickets to try their luck.
Employees at the Quality Car Wash in Holland say one out of every four customers is coming in just to buy a Mega Millions ticket.
They expect business to pick up more as Friday's drawing approaches.
"There's been a lot of people buying them, all ages," says clerk Jamie Slenk. "A lot of people get one easy pick. I think the largest ticket I've sold is 25 numbers at a time."
