Mega Millions Jackpot: $312 Million

DETROIT (WWJ) – Someone in Michigan could be 312 million dollars richer after tonight’s Mega Millions drawing. 

Odds of matching all five numbers plus the Mega Ball are nearly 176 million-to-one.

How does that stack up? The odds of… bowling a perfect game:  11,500-to-one; being dealt a royal flush in poker: 650,000 to-one; getting two holes-in-one in the same round of golf: 67 million-to one.

If the winner takes the up-front cash option, they will walk away with 198-million dollars, less taxes. Or, the winner could choose the annuity option and receive annual payments over a 26-year period.

What does 312 million dollars buy? Three-hundred diamond-studded dog collars from Harrods in London, or roughly 100 million gallons of gasoline–with a quantity discount, or, you could have paid for the entire construction of Comerica Park.

Listen to WWJ Newsradio 950 just after 11 pm to hear the winning numbers.
