With an estimated $868 million jackpot, the Mega Millions Lottery has crushed its previous record of $656 million, set in 2012. The current jackpot run has been rolling since July, with $22 million winning tickets – including many worth more than $1 million.
So, this Friday, if YOUR ticket has the right numbers – what will you do? Forbes has some very responsible ideas – including staying anonymous if you can, obtaining a financial advisor, avoiding sudden lifestyle changes, and living within a budget. But, in my opinion, when you’re dealing with $868 million, there’s gotta be some room for a little bit of irresponsibility.
So, what will you do? Cotton candy machines for EVERYONE? Move to your own island? Live exactly the same as you do now? Cover everything you own in diamonds? Hire a butler for your dog? Let us know in the Facebook comments!
