Now Peter’s jackpot looks like chump change…

Man, you cannot win with fiction.  Every time you set the bar at crazy, reality jumps it.  In first draft, I’d given Peter a $700,000,000 lottery prize, biggest US prize ever.  And now?

“Because no one matched all six numbers on Friday, the Mega Millions jackpot jumped to $550 million for Tuesday’s drawing.

It’s possible that the second largest pot in the history of the Mega Millions will eventually make a run for the all-time record of $656 million, which was split by three players on March 30, 2012.”

Now they’re talking about a $1,000,000,000 prize.  What’s a poor writer to do, but hope it ends up getting split like two dozen ways 🙂
