I couldn't imagine winning that much money at once, but somebody will. And with Michigan being a lotto hotspot with big winnings going out over the last year I wouldn't be surprised if the winning ticket was sold around here.

You don't have to be a big lotto player or gambler to get in on the fun. I literally only play the Mega Millions, and only when the jackpot gets crazy, like now. So I'll be grabbing my ticket tonight and fantasizing about what I'm gonna do with my winnings.

I looked up the price of islands nowadays, and it's actually not that bad! Well, if you hit the Mega Millions, nothing is too expensive...

Good Luck!
