What would you do with $110 million (AUD$140.5 million)? From investment to luxury vacations, the options are endless. Whatever you do, don’t be like Antoine Walker. After over a decade in the NBA, the retired basketball player went through his amassed $110 million fortune in TWO years, declaring bankruptcy in 2010 with over $12 million in debt. He cited bad real estate investments, including 140 properties in Chicago alone, as the main reason for his financial ruin. Could you have made better decisions with that money? Mega Millions is giving you a chance to win that same amount and prove your financial responsibility this Tuesday!
Hitting Nine Digits
On the first of May — May Day — the Mega Millions jackpot rolled over yet again and is now at a divine $110 million (AUD$140.5 million). One big winner came out of last Friday’s draw when a ticket sold in Illinois matched all five main numbers for the $1 million second prize. Unfortunately it did not come with the Megaplier, which would have tripled their fortune, but $1 million is not a bad payoff from a single lottery ticket purchase. Play Mega Millions online for your chance to have $110 million to your name just like Antoine Walker. Unlike him, here is a list of things that would be a better investment than buying 140 properties during a housing bubble:
* Modern and contemporary Asian art – Sotheby’s Hong Kong made over $110 million at a recent art auction; art pieces are decent investments and they look nice while you’re waiting for their value to increase!
* Fighting Manny Pacquiao – Floyd Mayweather just got a cheque for $100 million for winning a single boxing match, the most lucrative fight in boxing history. Start training now.
* Putting it in a bank with a good interest rate, talking to a wealth management accountant, and investing some money in safe bonds and dividends – Yeah, we know this is obvious, but apparently a lot of people skip this step.

You can save money by not flying to the US just to buy a lottery ticket. All you have to do is play online and let the winnings come to you! With great responsibility comes good luck!
