The scramble is on for tickets to Friday’s MegaMillions lottery, which happens to be the biggest jackpot in world history. Sitting at $500 Million, this equates to R3.8 Billion if you happen to be the single lucky winner. This crushes the previous record set, which was a mere $390 Million. If you win, you will be worth more than people like Jay-Z, Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber.
News stations are going crazy with the latest figures.
CNN had this to say:
The latest estimate, announced around midday Wednesday, is even larger than lottery officials had announced just hours earlier. The initial estimate for Friday’s drawing was $476 million, which also would have been a Mega Millions record.
Tuesday’s numbers were 9, 19, 34, 44 and 51, with a Mega Ball of 24. That drawing was for an estimated $363 million jackpot, which would have been the game’s third-largest.
Forty-seven tickets earned a pre-tax prize of at least $250,000 each by matching five numbers without matching the Mega Ball.
The game’s previous biggest jackpot was $390 million in a March 6, 2007, drawing.
A quick look at Wikipedia will confirm that it is in fact the biggest in WORLD history.
