California Lottery Mega-Millions Jackpot Hits $500 Million!

What would you do if you won? Splurge? Travel? Start a business? Give to charity? All of the above?


The California Lottery Mega-Millions game has a half billion-dollar jackpot for Friday night’s draw.

Half a billion dollars.  $500 million.

Any way you phrase it, that's a whole lotta cash.

The big jackpot could mean instant riches for the lucky winner --how would you handle that?

It could also offer a chance for some serious philanthropy.

If you won, how would it change your life? 

Would you give to charities or causes or become an entrepreneur?

Whatever you do, please start by who put up $10,000 for the San Leandro High School advanced placement class.

In fact, that could be the surest bet for your dollar, scientfically-speaking.

Still, it's fun to fantasize about joining the One Percent.

Article correct but headline should read "mega millions".... this is not regular california lotto. Be sure to ask for mega millions. This is a multi-state game , not just CA... something like 40 states I think.
