WANTAGH - Many Long Islanders are hoping that Lady Luck will smile upon them, with a $363 million Mega Millions jackpot on the line.

While the odds of taking home the top prize are 176 million-to-1, most of the people who bought a lottery ticket today already figured out what they're going to do with all that cash if they do win.

Rachel Richards, of Hicksville, says if she gets lucky, she will buy her dream house in Montauk, while Judy Katcher, of Levittown, would go on vacation to Tahiti.

Others, like Gail Juergensen, of Wantagh, have more grounded dreams, like using the prize money to take care of family, and Karen Schmohl, of Farmingville, says she would settle for just a couple of millions. The Mega Million numbers drawn Tuesday night were:9 19 34 44 51 Megaball: 24 Megaplier: 3.
