If you've ever had the dream that one day you'd wake up and all of your financial worries have gone away, just know that it can happen. Okay, it's happening now depending on when the person who has a Mega Millions ticket valued at over half a billion dollars wakes up.

That's right, Mega Millions game officials say a single ticket sold for last night's multi-state lottery game matched all the necessary numbers to claim the game's top prize. Which at the time of the drawing was estimated to be over $515 million.

The numbers drawn for last night's game (05/22/21) were:

06   09   17   18   48   MB 8  Megaplier x3.

Lottery officials say the winning ticket was sold in Pennsylvania. It was the ninth highest jackpot ever won playing Mega Millions and the $515 million is the single highest jackpot for a Mega Millions winner sold in Pennsylvania.

Based on statistics from Mega Millions there were 53 tickets sold for last night's drawing that are worth $10,000 or more. About 30 winners in Louisiana can lay claim to a cash prize of $100 or more from last night's game.

Now if you still have a lust for cash and want to change your world with a financial windfall you've still got tonight's Powerball drawing. The jackpot in that multi-state lottery game is estimated to be about $218 million. It's not $515 million but I don't think many of us would complain about having to take the money.

Oh, on the Mega Millions jackpot, that returns to the starting total of $20 million for next Tuesday's drawing. Meanwhile, I guess it's okay to continue contemplating the lifestyles of the rich and famous, right?
