    So the drawing for the Mega Millions will be on Friday.

    The jackpot: Annuity – $476,000,000 (would you really choose this? – time value of money, son)

    Lump Sum – $341,000,000

    1. Who’s buying a ticket? $1 for huge ROI

    2. And how would you spend it?

    First, I’d contact a good lawyer and a CPA.

    I would make sure my immediate family were all good financially, buy a few toys (fast cars, fast boat etc.), a regular sized house, travel a bit and live comfortably for the rest of my life.

    I think I’d still try to finish this exam just to say I did.

    Now your turn!

    @nolife

    Could you imagine that? Almost a BILLION dollar (Dr. Evil Voice) jackpot.

    How do they know every combination has been sold? Does that mean 175,000,000 tickets have been sold?

    I was watching the news this morning and before lottery tickets went on sale for today, Mega Millions had sold 1.2 billion tickets which gave it a 90% chance of someone winning tonight. By the time sales close tonight I'm sure every winning combination will be sold.

    BEC - Feb 2012: 80
    AUD - Feb 2012: 84
    FAR - Apr 2012: 78
    REG - May 2012: 90

    Thanks Becker!

    Who else won the lottery? I won $3. Seeing as how I expected no return, I think I did pretty well.

    Bec: 8/31/12

    Nice. I won $10 last week. Didn't hit anything tonight. Should have just flushed the cash down the toilet to make things easier LOL

    I think someone on the East Coast won tonight.
