The MegaMillions jackpot has reached over a billion dollars. Being the third highest prize in mega millions history, people in Crowley share what they would do if they won a billion dollars.

Some lottery hopeful, like Devin Johnson and Michael Fernandez, said they would go on vacation.

“I would take a very long vacation from work, buy a house, and then take the kids to Disney,” Johnson said.

Fernandez said he’d go on an extended vacation, help family and friends, and invest a good portion of it to make it last.

The jackpot has reached $1.1 billion dollars with a cash option of over $576.8 million. A winner has not been chosen since Oct. 14, 2022, making it three months since the jackpot has been touched. Other lottery hopefuls, like Angel Oquendo, share how they would help out.

“I would buy my mom a house, I’d buy myself a house and a decent nice car,” Oquendo said.
