10 Amazing Things A Billion Dollars Would Buy You In Montana
The Mega Millions Jackpot is $1.02 billion and is the fourth largest in U.S. history. The next drawing will be held Friday.
If you won the jackpot, your life would change forever. You and your family would never have to work again. You could spend your time travelling the world and not have to worry about how you were going to pay for it.
The chances of winning the Mega Millions Jackpot aren't good at all. In fact, the odds are 1 in 302.5 million. However, with tickets only $2, it's definitely worth a shot. If you did win, you could choose between a lump sum payout or an annual payout over the next 29 years.
If you decided to take the lump sum, you get $602.5 million, which is more than enough money to live comfortably for the rest of your life. Since its start in 1996, Montana hasn't had a single Mega Millions Jackpot winner.
Even if the odds of winning aren't great, it's fun to think about all of the different ways you could spend the money. We asked our listeners what they would buy first if they won the jackpot, and we received some great responses:
I’d buy myself a brand new triple wide.
Pay off all of my immediate family's debt, buy a truck, and fifth wheel trailer, and hit the road.
Honestly, Rhett, we can relate.
