I have thought about this pretty hard. Just once I'd like to wake up and find that in the overnight hours my net financial worth had skyrocketed to almost half a billion dollars. I'm not greedy, I'd be fine if that happened just one time.

Well, for some lucky lottery player that scenario occurred in real life last night. Thanks to the most recent Mega Millions lottery draw. The estimated jackpot at the time of last nights (06/07/19) drawing was $530 million. When the ping pong balls stopped bouncing here's what the numbers were.

17, 19, 27, 40, 68.

The Mega Ball drawn was 2. The Megaplier was 3x.

Officials with the Mega Millions game say one single ticket sold in California matched all of the numbers necessary to claim the games top prize.

The next Mega Millions drawing will be for $40 million on Tuesday. Isn't it funny how perspective can take an amount like 40 million and make it seem small?

The Powerball drawing tonight will feature a jackpot estimated to be $53 million. As always if you choose to play these lottery games understand your limits and play responsibly.
