Apparently the mega millions lottery is up to $586 Million and could hit $1 Billion by Christmas Eve if no one wins it between now and then. It’s so weird how the higher lottery amounts get more attention which make more people buy tickets… if only they could somehow manufacture a way for people to win less often. Oh wait, they did because according to the USA Today`:
“Originally, customers chose five numbers from 1-56 and one number from 1-46. The new structure has customers choosing five numbers from 1-75 and one number from 1-15. The change raised the odds of hitting a winner to 1 in 259 million from 1 in 176 million.”
Oh well, I don’t buy lottery tickets but if you do, then good luck :). Here’s a Tweet story of what’s happening:
What it really looks like
I’m pretty sure this is a serious question…
Where does the money for lottery come from? Not the scholarship but like the mega millions.

Watched an old man try to pen-in his numbers on a MegaMillions card with the credit card machine stylus & said "Why isnt this pen working"
