Information about the Drawing
For those who live outside the USA or for those of you who don't follow the lottery, I'll quickly go over a few facts that you might like to know before the numbers are drawn.
The previous world record was a $1.5 billion Powerball jackpot back in January, 2015.
How did the jackpot get this big? This will be the 26th drawing in a row, having gone 25 Mega Millions drawings without a winner.
25% of your winnings are immediately taken out for taxes.
Upon winning, you get 2 choices of payouts: 1) if you want your winnings in one lump sum, you will take home about $904 million 2) if you want the whole amount, you will take it in 30 annual payments, resulting in $53 million per year for 30 years.
We have about a 1/303 million chance of winning with our ticket.
We need to match 6/6 numbers to win it all. The first 5 numbers are from 1 - 70 and the last Mega Ball numbers is 1 - 25.
If we stacked up a billion dollars in $100 bills, it would be taller than the tallest building in the world (Burji Khalifa).
With a billion dollars we could buy any sports team in the world we want.
With that much money, we could take every single person on Scorum for a 25 day around the world trip and pay for everything single purchase and still have enough money left over to buy our own private island.
Join in and let's have some fun~!
Sorry guys, we didn't win. Winning numbers were:
