Time is running out to get in on that historic Mega Millions lottery draw.You have only a few hours to buy tickets for a shot at a jackpot that has soared to $640 million! The jackpot is now the largest ever in the world.Yeah, that kind of money is hard to imagine. Even a chunk of that jackpot would provide a nice lifestyle and secure future for most folks.
I bought a Mega Millions ticket at the Burbank Deli & Market near Beachwood Drive and Alameda Avenue yesterday morning. “Good luck to us,” the store clerk said as he handed me my ticket. I understood right away. I replied,”… the store retailer gets a million bucks for selling the winning lottery ticket.” He smiled and added, “we’re part of your team.” Interesting way of looking at it.
The big Mega Millions draw is at 7:45 p.m. this evening.
