Wow. That Mega Millions jackpot is huge. Over 600,000 Million dollars. Crazy. Over half billion dollars! But what is even crazier is reading all the media reports of how much money people spend (throw away!) on buying tickets.
I read about one person spending $2,600 on tickets! Wow. Of even the guy who doubled his weekly purchase of $25 to $50! He's spending over $1000 a year on a whole lot of bad math.
I might buy 2 or 3 tickets a year. I don't think I will be anywhere near a place that sells tickets today otherwise I might throw my $1 into the mix. But I've also heard about long lines to get tickets.
Can't wait to hear about the winning person(s). Wonder if all that money is going to improve their lives.
