It just goes to show what a couple days and frenetic lottery ticket buying fever does for jackpots – on Wednesday the forecast for today’s Mega Millions jackpot was expected to reach an unbelievable $476 MILLION – a new world lottery record! Well it appears that lottery tickets are flying out of the print terminals faster than green grass through a goose which means that the jackpot for today’s Mega Millions draw has been revised upwards and has now reached a staggering, $540,000,000 – that’s FIVE HUNDRED and FORTY MILLION dollars!
FIVE HUNDRED and FORTY MILLION bucks! DING DONG – that might just be enough to pay for a full tank of gasoline, with maybe a bit left over for your electric bill and a small contribution towards your credit card account; well perhaps I’m a touch optimistic with the credit card bit – a bit of lottery fever and you see how easy it is to get carried away!
I guess we also need to revise the size of the dollar stack – if $476 MILLION dollars piled on top of each other makes a stack 34.4 miles high then $540 million bucks stands another 2.5 miles taller to reach 36.9 miles into the sky. Now that really is reaching for the stars!
