Eveyone is talking about the half a billion dollars that is up for grabs this friday night. that's right if you just woke up, Friday nights drawing of the Mega Millions is worth 500 MILLION dollars! If you're the only jackpot winner, even after taxes, you'll be richer than a ton of famous people, including Mitt Romney, LeBron James, Lady Gaga, and Will Smith.
No one won the Mega Millions jackpot on Tuesday. So the Lotto craze is on! Which means that tomorrow, the jackpot will be an all-time record $476 MILLION. If not more. Since so many people will be collecting change and spending money they don't have to win, more ticket sales could push it up to $500 MILLION.
Here is just how much money that is. If you're the only jackpot winner, after you pay the government its cut in taxes almost half, you will net about 250 million dollars and that will make you richer than a bunch of famous people.
You'll wind up richer than Mitt Romney, who's worth about $250 MILLION, Lebron James, who's worth about $120 MILLION and Lady Gaga, who's worth about $90 MILLION.
Want some more? Regis Philbin at $70 million, Will Smith at $200 million , Prince at $235 million, Kanye West at $65 million, Dr. Phil at $220 million and Brad Pitt at $150 million.
You'll still be poorer than Mel Gibson, Tiger Woods, Simon Cowell, Bill Gates, James Cameron, Oprah, Puffy Daddy, Bono, Adam Sandler, Mariah Carey, Michael Jordan, and, inexplicably, Master P.
Tickets are on sale in 44 states. The drawing is tomorrow at 11:00 P.M. Eastern.
