Reporter: Hundreds of people waiting hours for their chance at that earth-shattering jackpot, nearly $1 billion. It's worth it if we get the ticket. Somebody's got to win it. Might as well be one of us. Reporter: Friday's mega millions drawing -- $970 million. The odds of winning, even longer than those lines. 1 in 302 million. Oh, yeah. Winning ticket right here. Reporter: And if you don't win Friday, there's always Saturday's Powerball jackpot -- $430 million. I'm going to buy an island. I'm going to go away and never coming back. Reporter: Your odds? 1 in 292 million. For some people, that's good enough. And David, we wonder what the odds would be if you wanted to win both jackpots. We found out, it's 1 in 88 kwa drillon. The people here are willing to take that chance. David? All right, gio, thank you. And those tweets are really entertaining. I can't read some of them, but we will with others tomorrow night.
