Mega Millions is a multi-state USA lottery game. The other Big Jackpot nationwide lottery is PowerBall.
You play Mega Millions this way:
Pick 5 numbers from 1 to 56
Pick 1 number from 1 to 46
and pay $1 per ticket.
We got 5 tickets riding on Friday's drawing! If we win (and don't have to split the jackpot with too many other icky winners), S.W.M.B.O. says she wants a pony, and I think I would like to go traveling again -- Antarctica, Patagonia/Tierra del Fuego, Angkor Wat, Iqaluit, and oh yeah back to Yerp and Netherlands and maybe see the bonobo zoo in Belgium and go to Prague again and Budapest and see the spiffy new Klee Museum in Bern -- and C.E.R.N. and the Large Hadron Collider near Geneve. Oh and the Falkirk Wheel and the Ring of Brodgar.
And if the ticket price is reasonable, maybe a quick trip into orbital space on SpaceX or Virgin Space.
