Raising Cane’s founder buys 50,000 Mega Millions tickets for his workers

The founder of Raising Cane’s is creating an incredibly large Mega Millions betting pool for its staff.

Todd Graves has announced that he will be buying 50,000 Mega Millions tickets, roughly the number of his crew members, as the jackpot in the game hits $810 million for Tuesday’s drawing.

If any of the tickets wins the jackpot, crewmembers could win thousands of dollars each, according to a press release from the Louisiana-based fast food chain, which specializes in chicken fingers.

The jackpot is the third-largest in the game’s history, according to its website. Mega Millions tickets are sold in 45 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands, with drawings on Tuesdays and Fridays.

The biggest jackpot was $1.537 billion, won by one ticket on Oct. 23, 2018.

The last big win was on a Jan. 28 ticket worth $421 million ticket sold at a Chevron gas station in Woodland Hills.

Mega Millions describes itself as a consortium of lotteries, which includes the California State Lottery.

Raising Cane’s has nearly 700 restaurants in 35 states and Guam, the news release said.
