What's The Maximum Amount Of Lottery Tickets One Can Buy And Not Feel Like An Asshole The Next Day?

CNN – A surge in ticket sales pushed the value of the Mega Millions jackpot to $540 million on Thursday. Lottery officials said “significant public and media interest” has spurred an onslaught of new ticket buyers willing to try their luck. That continuing surge is likely to push that figure even higher before the next Mega Millions drawing at 11 p.m. Friday. If a winning ticket is claimed following Friday’s drawing, the winner can choose to take the total jackpot in annual payments over 29 years or opt for a one-time payout of about $380 million minus taxes.

None. None is the answer.
