404017 04: A Big Game lottery ticket is visible as it spits out of a lottery machine at a Citgo gas station April 16, 2002 in Russell, Illinois, a small community in northern Illinois on the Illinois-Wisconsin border. Thousands of people are rushing to snap up tickets for the Tuesday night April 16, 2002 drawing, the second-biggest lottery jackpot in U.S. history. The jackpot in the seven-state game played in Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey and Virginia climbed $25 million Monday, April 15, 2002 after strong sales over the weekend. By the time of the drawing, the prize could swell past the U.S. record of $363 million, split by two Big Game winners in 2000. (Photo by Tim Boyle/Getty Images)
