The Big Game Lottery now stands at 325- million dollars.
But that number could climb to a U-S record of 363- million, when the numbers are drawn tonight.
The odds of winning-- one in 76 million.
Number crunchers have figured that you're more likely to get killed while driving to buy the ticket, than winning the jackpot.
The lottery is played in seven states, including Virginia.
