The $72 million treasure trove is certainly plenty to get excited about, and would mean a swashbuckling good time for the winner! With $72 million in doubloons, a pirate talking winner could buy:
- More than 1.4 million pirate costumes
- 8 million stuffed parrots
- 2 million skull and crossbones pirate flags
- 960 hand-crafted, authentic pirate ships
The last time the Mega Millions jackpot was won by a Michigan player there was another notable date on the calendar: Friday the 13th. Kelsey Zachow, of Port Huron, defied all superstition that day and won a $66 million jackpot.
Mega Millions drawings take place each Tuesday and Friday evening. Each Mega Millions play is only $1. For an additional $1 per play, players have the opportunity to add a “Megaplier” that can multiply non-jackpot prizes by up to five times. Friday’s Mega Millions jackpot has climbed to $180 million.
