(NECN: Jackie Bruno - Cambridge, Mass.) - With no jackpot winner on Wednesday night, Saturday's jackpot has risen to $475 million. Local residents weighed in on how they would spend all that money.

"I'd probably do some traveling," said Gerry Haire of Cambridge, Mass.

Anywhere in particular?

"Everywhere, world trip!" He said.

Laurie Mokriski of South Boston, however, said the real lottery is being happy with your life as it is.

"I'm pretty content. I like my job. I like where I live. So I don't think I need anything frivolous. I feel pretty good about life."
