Welcome to the madness of the lottery prizes.
All major media are talking about Mega Millions has broken the barrier of $ 400 million, almost half a billion dollars, and occupying a place in the history books and records.
Forty-seven notes, have almost won last night. They matched the first five numbers: 9, 19, 34, 44 and 51 – but not the Mega Ball number was 24.
Most will win $ 250,000 – instead of over a thousand times that amount.
The jackpot soared to 476 million for Friday’s draw – erasing the old mark of United States and around the world by 390 million jackpot in the Mega Millions in March 2007.
The jump from 120 million a drawing to another was also a record, surpassing the 115 million also in March 2007.
The prize money beats up his own record, catapulting 259 million to 341 to 101,000,000 more than the cash prize that had the previous record reached 240 million by the Mega Millions in January last year.
If stacked in a single stack of banknotes of 1, the cash bonanza could start at the lowest point of the oceans and the tower is still above Mount Everest.
If paid at the rate of 1 per minute, the payment would take more than 600 years.
