LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA — There’s no such thing as too much money. And Floyd Mayweather, Jr. isn’t afraid to place the odds in his favor regarding the Mega Millions jackpot.
IS IT A NUMBERS GAME?
Ideally, the more tickets you play, the more chances you have to win, right?
Yes and no. While you’ll have more chances to win, it’s not like a “raffle” where they’re pulling a person’s name from the mix. In that situation, the more tickets you have in the mix, the better your chances of being selected.
Instead, in this case, you’re attempting to preemptively guess six numbers — in one particular sequence… out of a million possible series. The chances of hitting the jackpot are astronomically written in a black hole.
Yet apparently, Mayweather is feeling lucky.
Maybe it’s the pending fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov, or the “luck of the Irish” — after devastating Conor McGregor — but, according to TMZ, Floyd was seen in L.A. making it rain on a gas station counter after purchasing $2,000 worth of Mega Millions lottery tickets.
The source reports as follows.
“Floyd rolled into a 76 gas station in L.A. on Thursday and told the cashier to start ringing up the Mega Millions tickets. You can see the stack of orange tickets in his hand as he walked out with his bodyguard.”
Floyd Mayweather spends $2,000 on Mega Millions lottery tickets, hopes to win the $1bln Mega Millions jackpot. Floyd is almost worth $1bln ($700m-$1bln). If there is one winner, the person can ask for a lump sum of $565 million. It is the 2nd biggest jackpot in U.S. history. pic.twitter.com/ETLQkpluaG

However, as you know from the drawing, no one won the jackpot, even with Floyd purchasing 1,000 number sets.
So now, the jackpot has risen again. Now, it’s $1.6 billion and is expected to exceed $2 billion by Tuesday, October 23’s drawing. Guess he’ll be buying $2,000 worth again?
What would you do with the winnings? The cash option will be at $1 billion, itself.
Imagine that for a moment. One billion dollars, cash.
There are several people who claim they’ll give most of it away. So, why not just play another game with a lower jackpot?
It’s time to think about generational wealth, people. This could be the set up for a dynasty! Just saying. Think bigger.
This is about your kids. Your kids’ kids. Your kids’ kids’ kids. And their kids.
