For most people, winning Mega Millions is just something to joke around about. Many will get in to conversations about how they would claim their prize and what they would do first. With last night’s jackpot skyrocketing to $355M, almost everyone in the country purchased a ticket. People did pools at work, stopped in to a gas station for a quick pick, or spent an hour trying to pick logical numbers.
In case you missed it, the winning Mega Millions numbers were 4, 8, 15, 25, 47, and the mega ball was 42. According to CNN, there were two winners of the jackpot, one from Idaho and one from Washington. Imagine winning the lottery and then finding out you have to split it with someone else? Of course many people wouldn’t mind – that’s still millions of dollars – but it’s a little bit of a downer when you think about it.
