Mega Millions tonight’s draw to win an amazing $830 million is the third biggest lottery jackpot in history. The founder of a chicken restaurant chain truly wants to win this incredible prize!
AJ Kumaran, co-CEO of Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers, says he bought 50,000 tickets to split the jackpot with the company’s 50,000 workers.
At two bucks a pop, that’s a $100,000 roll of the dice.
Kumaran claims that every employee will be given a ticket. If anyone wins, all of them get equal shares.
Video shows the 50,000 tickets being printed at a store in Dallas — a process that took about eight hours.
According to Dr. Mark Glickman, Harvard statistician, and lottery expert, the chances of winning are 1 to 6,052 for restaurant workers and 1 in 303 millions for the rest.
Each employee would receive $16,200.
Since April, no one has matched all six numbers. It’s been 28 consecutive drawings since then without a winner.
The drawing will be held tonight at 11 p.m. Eastern Time.
