Amazing. Just amazing.
We (who play the lottery) are living an historic moment: the biggest jackpot in the game’s history … in the U.S.A. at least…will be $476 million (or higher) up for grabs Friday, March 30, 11 p.m. E.S.T.
The winning numbers for the $356 million (not too shabby), which was the third-largest prize in the game’s history, were 9, 19, 34, 44, 51 and Mega Ball 24, but they did not produce a winner, officials said.
The largest Mega Millions jackpot ever won was $390 million in March 2007.
The winner is selected through five balls drawn from a set of balls numbered one through 56, and one ball is drawn from a set numbered one through 46.
While there are nine ways to win a prize, starting from $2, ticket buyers across the country have their eyes on the $356 million jackpot, which has been growing since Jan. 24.
The odds of winning any of the Mega Millions prizes are approximately 1 in 40.
So get ready for LOTTERY FEVER in this country, and around the world.
Get ready for lottery talk on the TV and radio.
Get ready for people who’ve never played the game before, playing it on Mar. 30.
It’s gonna be wild.
And by Mar. 30, officials are saying there may be a readjustment of the top prize to about half a BILLION dollars.
I know I’ll be playing.
How about YOU?
