640 Million Jackpot for Mega Millions by Loretto on 30 March 2012 7:36pm
 
Yep, that number is correct, and it is still climbing. Funny, I thought we were in a recession and people had no money? Strange how they have enough for lottery tickets.

What's $640,000,000.00 in Sterling?
400.12800 Mil British Pound
or
479.80800 Mil Euro

I COULD BUY IRELAND!!! Wahoooooooo!

I'll still be friends with you all though. :-)

The drawing is tonight. I'll keep you posted.

I've heard that so far, there is one winner.

If you send your bank details to my Lagos addy, I'll check and see if you you may be due a part share. You don't need to have bought a ticket.

One person supposedly did win. In Maryland. People are going into the Seven 11 to get their picture taken with the lotto machine!!!!

Oh uh! Now saying 3 winners, winning tickets were sold in Illinois and Kansas as well. You know that person in Maryland is holding their head in their hands and crying now.

We bought two tickets in San Diego, don't think we won.

LOL Loretto, yeah, I'd be upset at having to do a threeway split with that money. I hope that there are many more claimants and that obscene amount of money can make a difference to as many folk as possible.

I've never craved to be wealthy but a bit more than I have would be nice, in order to help my girls buy their own homes, which was relatively easy in my youth but is nigh on impossible for them.

I agree, 640 million would probably do more harm than good. Too much money. I wouldn't mind a couple of million though, get rid of the mortgage, build myself an elementary middle and high school. Yep, I would love to have my own private school because I disagree with all teaching to the test that goes on here.

Didn't win, so fugeddaboudit!!

My beautiful boy is asleep on my living-room floor atm. He doesn't know what a $ or a £ is and he's blissfully happy.

His needs are met and he is content. I wish we could all be the same.
