Feeling lucky? If so, now might be a good time to act because it could help you retire early and sign up all your friends to become OutKick VIPs. (Something we assume you’ve already done or at least considered.)

All you need to do is win the Mega Millions jackpot — which is now $490 million. Yes, a half billion. That’s the eighth-largest in history. Some winners have already emerged, per an NBC report.

“Officials said there were four tickets that matched five white balls to win the game’s second prize of at least $1 million on Tuesday night, but no one has matched all six numbers since Sept. 15,” the report read.

And before you think it can never happen to you, remember that some lucky ticket-holder raked in the largest jackpot in U.S. history a little more than a year ago, picking up a cool $1.5 billion in September 2019.

So, feeling lucky yet? The Mega Millions jackpot has half a billion reasons for you to give that feeling your best shot.
