The amount is the third highest Mega Millions jackpot ever, according to the Mega Millions website.

People all over Milwaukee streamed into gas stations on Tuesday to purchase their $2 "golden ticket."

"As long as you buy a ticket you have a chance," exclaimed Rolando Rivera.

So what are the odds you win the big jackpot? According to Mega Millions, it is a one in 302 million chance. Regardless, Milwaukee local Pete Stojanovich was holding out hope.

"All it takes is one and if I'm fortunate enough, hallelujah," said Stojanovich.

According to the Wisconsin Lottery, tickets must be purchased before 9 p.m. to be included in Tuesday's 10 p.m. drawing.

Good luck!
