Tonight’s Mega Millions lottery jackpot is now up to $415 million making it the third largest ever for the game and would sure make for a hell of a way to kick off a three-day weekend by winning it. Sure, the odds of that happening are low but – wait – shut up, odds! No one wants to hear from you. Just give me that money.
Since I know you are wondering, if you take the lump sum that will be a nice payout of $286 million – which should be enough for you to get that house you always wanted, a cool car, and the hell out of the Coachella Valley whenever the temperature is hotter than the sun.
So go out and get a ticket, then avoid every one of your coworkers today since you do not want to be part of their dumb office pool that never wins.
As the Mega Millions jackpot grows, the California Lottery would like to remind you to please play responsibly. pic.twitter.com/b011eDQkRG
