The cash payout on the grand prize would be 757.2 million. With a prize that high up for grabs, excitement and anticipation is building in Texoma. 

"I'm working on a project to open up a bed and breakfast in an old 117 year old I could certainly use it for that," said a local resident.

If no lucky winner, the jackpot prize will continue to increase and there will be another drawing on Tuesday.
