In short, no one has long won the big Powerball or Mega Millions payoff, so the jackpots are wickedly high. The Powerball pot is $ 470 million, and the top Mega Millions price is $ 1.6 billion. This makes it the biggest draw in the history of the US lottery.
Admittedly, these numbers are reduced a lot as soon as the cash value calculations and the good old Uncle Sam get the profits in their hands. But it's still an obscene amount of money.
Taylor Swift is said to have a net worth of around $ 300 million. If you win the Mega Millions, you can take home $ 904 million and be nearly three times as rich as you, without it really working. Do you know the Commonwealth of Dominica, a small island country in the West Indies? Their GDP for 201
7 was $ 562 million. They could literally be almost twice as rich as a whole country.
Even if you've just won the Powerball Jackpot and paid off with $ 248 million, like a farmer, you could still be worth 0.82 Taylor Swifts and finally afford a comfortable two-room room in San Francisco.
The Mega Millions drawing on Friday had no winners. The next one is Tuesday, while the next Powerball drawing is Saturday.
