One-Point-Six-Billion Dollars.

Here's what that looks like by the numbers: $1,600,000,000.00. That is what the jackpot is for Tuesday night's Mega Millions drawing. That my friend is a lot of zeroes.

According to WILX-TV, people who are interested in winning that big jackpot here in Michigan have already snatched up Mega Millions tickets to the tune of over three million. That my friend is a lot of tickets. In fact, that's around 120,000 tickets sold every hour.

I know that our lottery club has sprung up again this week at work and we're all going to take a shot at the big prize once again. Don't forget, if you want a shot at the Mega Millions jackpot, you're going to want to have your tickets purchased by 10:45 p.m. on Tuesday.
