    I'd probably go to sleep if the drawing wasn't just an hour away, so passing some time. I had $2 in my wallet so I bought 2 tickets. I don't think I've bothered since 15 years ago, which was a once in a long time thing then too. For a chance at $640 million why not, eh?

    I live in Florida so I had Texas_Red buy me 12 tickets there in Texas. So technically My husband and I have 12 tickets, Red's got 4 and if I win we share with Red since he went out of the way to get the tickets for us.

    Drawing is in ONE minute.

    Bought only one ticket. Made more off the 50/50 drawing and the strike pot at bowling tonight lol.

    Didn't hit one number on the Mega Millions. But $5 got me 41 in the 50/50 and a little ol'quarter got me $100 in the strike pot lol

    Sucks I have to go to work monday, but got half my gas budget for next week so its all good.

    Mega Millions Official Home

    3 people won the jackpot. That's 460 million (cashout) spit 3 ways. That's insane.

    Jackpots down to 12 million.

    My friend lives in Baltimore, MD. Her friend (age 25) won this jack pot.

    She's super jealous. As am I.

    I got 1 number right between all of the numbers on my 2 tickets. I know statistics is a category of liars, but I took the last 25 lotteries and picked my numbers from those that showed up the least, so all the numbers I used have either not shown up at all on the last 25 drawings or only showed up 1 time.

    I don't feel bad about having spent $2 on this inevitable outcome.
