NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A huge Mega Millions jackpot that's up for grabs on Friday night, could make a lucky lottery player $502-million richer.

Felice from Yonkers told 1010 WINS' Roger Stern she would take the money and move someplace warm with a beach. She's definitely into it.

"Absolutely, I'm gonna buy a ticket, I love Mega Millions," she said.

She says she usually buys three tickets, one for herself, and one each for her children.

Jack from Harlem refuses to speculate on how he would spend the cash.

"If you don't get it, everything goes downhill," he said.

There hasn't been a Mega Millions winner since January 5.
