What would be doing to occupy our time without Mega Millions? We still have a week before Christmas Eve so there’s plenty of time still to run round and you wouldn’t want the chance to deprive your friends and family really cool gifts just in case you won. You know they’d hold the fact you gave them matching Mr. and Ms. Clause potholders over your head if you happened upon a half billion before Christmas. $586 million if you want to be picky, but after the first 100 million I start to lose count. Your odds of winning are 259 million to 1. That’s the same odds as picking up the phone, pressing one and hitting 10 numbers and having the President answer!
