Mega millions jackpot climbs to $940 million - what can you buy for nearly $1 billion?

The Mega Millions jackpot increased to an estimated $940million after another drawing resulted in plenty of losers but not a single grand prize winner. It’s a sum that’s hard to wrap your head around but what can you buy for nearly $1billion?

Bag a super yacht

You could buy the Azzam super yacht for $600million and still have $400million to play around with.

The 590-foot ship is currently thought to be the largest private yacht in the world and one of the fastest, with a top speed of 35 miles per hour.

Unfortunately, the yacht is currently not for sale. It’s reportedly owned by a member of the royal family of the UAE, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

Bag a private island

Blue Island in the Bahamas is up for grabs.

It includes a jet airstrip, main living and staff houses, four miles of roads, and power, water, and communications hookups.

And it can be yours for a small sum of $75million.

Iconic car

Or why not go for the most expensive car of all time: the 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO?

In 1964, the 250 GTO won the Tour de France Automobile – marking the ninth year in a row that Ferrari won that race.

Only 36 of these cars were made between 1962 and 1963; the specific Ferrari that’s the most expensive in the world, at a whopping $70million price point, was victorious not only in the Tour de France, but it also placed in the Le Mans.

With a top speed of 174 miles per hour and an acceleration of 0-60 mph (0-100 km/h) in 6.1 seconds, it’s not the fastest, but it’s timeless.

How to bag the golden ticket

The numbers drawn late Tuesday were: 25, 29, 33, 41, 44 and gold Mega Ball 18.

The next drawing is scheduled to be held Friday night.

The jackpot-winning drought isn’t surprising given the daunting odds of one in 302.6 million of winning the top prize.
