As the Mega Millions jackpot nears record territory, the founder of restaurant chain Raising Cane buys tickets for all of the company’s 50,000 employees.
If one of the lots came up with lucky numbers, the prize money was divided among the workers. According to a statement, according to current calculations, that would bring in several thousand dollars each.
Raising Cane founder Todd Graves says buying the tickets is a nice gift for the workers and could turn into a pleasant surprise for everyone on Wednesday morning.
“Buying 50,000 lottery tickets is harder than you think! Hoping to share the winning jackpot with our 50,000 @RaisingCanes crew,” Graves posted on Twitter.
Lottery officials on Monday boosted the Mega Millions top prize to $810 million, giving players a shot at one of the nation’s biggest jackpots.
The next drawing is on Tuesday.
