Mega Millions mania has taken over pretty much everybody. Especially Michigan. With no winners for Tuesday night, the new Mega Millions jackpot is now estimated at $900 million dollars. With a cash option payout of $513 million dollars.

If someone wins here in Michigan, after taxes (24 percent for federal income taxes and 4.25 percent for state income taxes), they would pocket a cool $368 million dollars.

And, Michigan has the fever. As a matter of fact, Michiganders are buying Mega Millions tickets at a rate of 45,000 PER HOUR. (WXYZ)

Two dollars will get you in the game for Mega Millions. For an additional $1, lottery hopefuls can add the Megaplier which can multiply your non-jackpot winnings up to five times.

So, you do the math. At $2 bucks a ticket, that's $90,000 per hour. And $3 buck a ticket, that's $135,000 per hour. Just in Michigan alone.

BTW, there is a 1 in 24 chance of winning any Mega Millions prize. Chances for hitting the jackpot are 1 in 302,575,350. (IndyStar)

The next drawing is Friday night (October 19th, 2018) at 11 pm Eastern time.
