Tonight, millions of Americans will try to cash in on the Mega Millions jackpot, which is up to a life changing $363 million.
While our brains churn about how that much wealth could change our lives, we decided to share our formula for the winning numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions.
It’s a complex process, but we won’t bore you with how we picked our numbers. We’ll just share the numbers we think are going to bring the cash for tonight’s jackpot.
First for those who never played this lottery game, here is how it works.
Players pick six numbers from two separate pools of numbers – five different numbers from 1 to 56 and one number from 1 to 46 – or select Easy Pick. You win the jackpot by matching all six winning numbers in a drawing.
So now that you know how to play, we’ve picked your first five numbers and your jackpot number, as we like to call it.
The first 5:
Our first number is 18, inspired by Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart’s relationship. We figured if they could find love with an 18 year age gap, that might be a good number to put on our list.
The next number we chose was 7, for our girl Lindsay Lohan. She’s been on formal probation for 4 years, and since she’s about to get off, she’ll have just under 3 years of informal probation for a total of 7 years of probation. She has lawyers and when we win $363 million, lawyers are surely needed, so why not a lucky number 7?
For our next number, we decided to look towards hip-pop’s first couple Jay-Z and Beyonce for our inspiration. We could have went with the number 4 for obvious reasons, but instead we picked the number 31. Between the two of them, our favorite couple has 31 tweets, all by Jay-Z. Beyonce still hasn’t tweeted despite having 3,499,360 followers who are all eagerly awaiting her first 140 characters.
This wouldn’t be GlobalGrind if we didn’t add the Kardashians to our mix. There are currently 16 members of the Kardashian/Jenner/Disick clan here on Earth waiting for the arrival of the next member of their brood. Kourtney will be pregnant for 9 months, so 16 plus 9 gives us 25.
Since our favorite Coco picture that’s actually safe for work was taken at Pier 54, we chose the number 54 to close out our main pool of numbers.
As for our bonus pool, we went for the more serious side of things. Rihanna has 17 tattoos that we know of, Jeremy Lin, who just so happens to be one of our favorite basketball players wears number 17, but most importantly, Trayvon Martin enjoyed 17 years of life. For our bonus number we are going to pick 17.
So with our final numbers being “18, 7, 31, 25, 54 and 17;” we like our odds!
