Hype For Mega Millions Could Soar To $1,000,000,000 Jackpot

Due to heightened demand to win millions around the holidays and a huge multi-state lottery jackpot, Mega Millions could soar to $1,000,000,000 jackpot. Hopeful gamblers are headed to convenience stores and lottery retailers to get a chance at winning what could be one of the largest jackpots in word history. While the official ruling so far on Mega Millions only puts the current jackpot around $650 Million, that number could climb dramatically. If nobody wins this next drawing tomorrow, you can expect the next jackpot to be staggering.

 Screenshot 2013-12-16 at 8.56.38 AMLast year the Mega Millions lottery hit its all-time high jackpot of $656 Million, but this year could shadow that number like never before. Sure, some of this is speculation, but it is still highly possible. Historically the larger jackpots have caused people to buy more tickets than they normally would, and even people who rarely play the lottery will go out and buy tickets in pursuit of the riches.

If you are reading this article, and you haven’t already purchased your tickets, chances are that you might be headed out to buy some before Tuesday’s drawing. Winning the jackpot would be a life changing event for any that can stake a claim in the prize. There may even be more than one winner if one is drawn, as happens regularly during large jackpots. The want of people to win causes so many to play that the odds of the same numbers being picked more than once grow.

We will be waiting for official word from the Mega Millions folks to see how much of this holiday hype is true, and how much of it is wishful thinking on behalf of those wishing to become and overnight billionaire. Even if the jackpot falls short of the hoped $1,000,000,000 number, whoever wins this will no doubt have much more money than they do today.
