Primm Valley Lotto Store Rammed

Yesterday morning, the Primm Valley Lotto Store on the California-Nevada border was rammed. By 11:30 a.m., the line stretched out to more than 1,000 people. The store opened at 8 a.m., but that did not stop Las Vegans from turning up at 6 a.m. to start lining up. By late morning, the wait time in line was 4 hours.

So what’s the big deal? Well, the big deal is a massive jackpot that is going to be won tonight. This is no ordinary jackpot, as it is the largest Mega Millions jackpot in history to date, to the tune of $540 million. Tickets are only $1, and customers bought plenty of tickets. One such customer was Reinaldo Nunley, a Greyhound bus driver. He bought 56 Mega Millions lottery tickets at the Primm Valley Lotto Store.

So why the big rush? Well, for one thing, the lottery numbers of this massive jackpot will be announced tonight, and for another, since lottery tickets are not sold in Nevada, residents of Las Vegas that want to play and have a chance to win have to buy their tickets at the Primm Valley Lotto Store on the California-Nevada border.

Tickets will stop being sold by 7:45 p.m. tonight, so for those looking to buy tickets, make a mad dash for the border, because chances are, the line up today will be even longer.
