Cha-ching! That's the sound one lucky ticketholder could be hearing after the Mega Millions lottery drawing Friday night at 8:00.
The jackpot has reached an estimated record high of $640 million, according to the Mega Millions website. Media hype about the jackpot hitting half a million dollars earlier in the week fueled a last-minute buying spree that pushed it up even further.
The odds of winning: 1 in 176 million, according to the Sacramento Bee.
Elk Grovians, what would you do if your numbers came up? Would you put the money towards a good cause? Shower your family (or yourself) with gifts? What does Elk Grove need that $640 million could buy?
