Bloomberg- One winning ticket was sold in Michigan for the $1 billion Mega Millions jackpot, making it the third-largest lottery prize in U.S. history. The winning numbers drawn Friday are: 4, 26, 42, 50, 60 and a Mega Ball of 24. The winning ticket was purchased at a Kroger store in Novi, Michigan — a city about 8 miles (13 kilometers) northwest of Detroit — according to the Michigan Lottery website.
The jackpot figures refer to amounts if a winner opts for an annuity, paid in 30 annual installments. Most winners choose a cash prize, which for the Mega Millions jackpot is $739.6 million.
The odds of winning a Mega Millions jackpot are incredibly steep at one in 302.5 million.
Did Pres do it again or did Pres do it again? Look, I am someone that is extremely grounded in the realities of life and all that mumbo jumbo. But you cannot tell me that it is a coincidence that the lone winner of a billion dollar lottery game just happened to reside in the same state on the same day of this:
Portnoy starts Barstool Sports in 2003 followed by the Red Sox breaking the curse, the Celtics and Bruins winning titles for the first time in forever, and the Patriots establishing maybe the most impressive dynasty any of us will ever see. To borrow a phrase it's…
The winner of that ticket may have been playing the same numbers of the birthday of their family every week for their entire lives. But you cannot convince me they would've become a billionaire overnight as the LONE WINNER OF A BILLION DOLLAR JACKPOT if they didn't get a rub from Portnoy's deal with the devil that is old enough to vote.
*If you Well Actually'd that last sentence because they technically wouldn't be a billionaire because of taxes or whatever, kindly punch yourself in the face for being a weenie
I don't know if anybody power ranks states of this great nation, but I think Michigan is clearly number 1 with a bullet considering they have a billion dollar winner, a beautiful new Barstool Sportsbook at the Greektown Casino, and a bunch of small businesses are going to receive the help they need thanks to the aforementioned sportsbook and the great people of Michigan.
If you are one of those great people in Michigan or planning to go to Michigan, make sure to download the Barstool Sportsbook app and gamble responsibly!
P.S. I swear to God if Dave was actually the person who won that billy mere hours after he opened his own casino, I will…congratulate him immensely! Dave's always been a wonderful boss and an even better person. Go Pres Go! Now if it wouldn't be too much, can you pay off my mortgage using what was already ash tray money for you and is now probably seat cushion of your private jet money now.
