Oklahomans dropped some extra money buying a second round of lottery tickets Tuesday evening.

One dollar...two dollars...tickets were selling fast.
Tulsans went out in droves when they saw the mega millions jackpot jumped from $390 million to $355 million big ones in just one day.
"Already got mine, got yours? Alright!” gas stations were abuzz with people buying up Mega Million tickets.
"Sure I can waste a dollar, here two dollars here, but I've already been in here and wasted $15 and I'm about to spend $20 more,” player, Tim Taff said.
Some dropped way more than a dollar, trying to increase their chances.
"Give me 20 quick pick on the mega millions,” Taff said. Taff is convinced he is going to get rich.
"I’m just going to show Oklahomans the winning tickets right here tonight,” he said. "These will be the winning tickets, sorry guys."
Tony Altaweel spent $40 for tickets but usually only spends a few dollars playing every weekend. Altaweel says his technique, filling out the numbers by hand, is the way to win.
"I like to pick the numbers myself, birthdays for special people, my kids and hopefully I win,” he said.
If he wins, Tony says he will even give his cashier a cut, “bless the cashier,” he said.
But tony won't find out if he's a winner until Wednesday. “Wait for the next day and see if I'm surprised."
Quick-pick guy wants to know now.
Players had until 8:59 tonight to purchase tickets for the drawing. Mega Millions drawings are held on Tuesday and Friday at 9:59 p.m.
