FORT MYERS, Fla. — Two big lottery drawings are happening this week.

Tuesday night’s drawing for Mega Millions jackpot is at $245,000,000 and Wednesday night's Powerball jackpot is up to $322,000,000.

One woman struck gold at the Circle K gas station on S. Tamiami Trail and Sanibel Blvd. in Fort Myers. She won a $2,000,000 Powerball prize in October 2018 and claimed it last month.

Stephen Edlund stopped by the same Circle K gas station to fill up his car on his way to work. He said he already has plans if he wins. “Oh man, maybe pay off some bills, but a new house, go on an amazing vacation and give to charity of course. Still waiting for my lucky turn to win that big, big jackpot,” he said.

He said he’ll play some numbers after work.
