Your grandpa or mama ever send you to the store for their lotto ticket? They give you their numbers that have some special meaning thats either their kids birthday or some superstitious explanation. We don’t try to persuade anyone to gamble or be irresponsible with their money but, it may be worth it to buy a ticket for the Mega Millions. Friday the 13th was the first drawing for which there were no winners. As a result the pot has been upped to $550 million!
No ticket matched the six numbers needed to win Friday’s $425 million prize. It was raised Saturday to $550 million for Tuesday’s drawing — the fourth largest in U.S. history.
Paula Otto, executive director of the Virginia Lottery and Mega Millions’ lead director, told the Associated Press on Sunday that sales were up by as much as 20 percent over weekend numbers and were expected to spike on Tuesday, the day of the drawing.
Hey now, if you win be sure to slice us a little peace of pie! Good luck to you if you’re playing.
