Now, The Mega Millions is Up To $636 Million
The amount keeps changing. The Mega Millions Lottery Jackpot changes hourly and as of this hour, 1 p.m., December 17thm the jackpot is up to $636 million!The $636 million is just $20 million shy of the United States record! Really, What do you do if you win? Is nearly 1 billion dollars too much money?
The Mega Millions Lottery is played in 43 states including Montana. The drawing will take place at 9:00 p.m. Mountain Time tonight!
Some important things to remember:
- You should always sign your ticket immediately, but especially when the jackpot is out of control like Mega Millions tonight.
- In this world of “selfies”, it is wise to get a picture of you holding your ticket. If you win, your selfie could act as some proof that the ticket is owned by you.
- If you win, contact people who have handled mega money before, including an attorney.
- Figure out if you can stay anonymous if you choose to.
Good luck and don’t spend it all in one place! By the way if I win, I am choosing the “cash option” of $341 million. If there is no winner tonight, then the jackpot is projected to top $1 billion dollars for the next drawing!
