The largest lottery jackpot in world history has created a lottery ticket buying frenzy!!!
With the jackpot set at $640 million, a single winner could claim yearly payments on a one-time cash option of $462 million!
Gary Grief, executive director of the Texas Lottery and lead director for the Mega Millions group shared this morning:
"Friday night's Mega Millions drawing will truly be a spectacular event in lottery history and provides an unprecedented opportunity for players to take a chance on a half-billion dollar dream for just the $1 price of a ticket."
We've bought at least a thousand so far. JK! Lolz.
But seriously even though the odds are better of getting stuck by lightning than winning the lottery, who cares??? You gotta be in it to win it as they say and did we mention it's 640 MILLION DOLLARS!!!
What would U do if U won???
