UNIQUE-TO-RICHMOND LOTTERY FUN FACTS

(Richmond, IN)--Tuesday night’s $1.6 billion Mega Millions has lots of people dreaming big.  Here are a few unique things you could do with the money if you’re the winner.  If you wanted to be generous and decided to share it equally with every Wayne County resident, you would be able to give every man, woman, and child in the county $24,000.  If you wanted to fund Richmond city government, you could do that by yourself until the year 2102.  If you wanted to buy a house in Wayne County at the median price, you could buy 17,000 homes.  If you took the winnings in hundred dollar bills and stacked them up, the stack of hundreds would be as tall as eight Leland buildings in downtown Richmond stacked on top of each other.  If you lined up those hundreds end-to-end, they would stretch from Richmond to Salt Lake City.
