There was no lucky winner of Friday's $1 billion Mega Millions jackpot, which means Tuesday's drawing will increase to an estimated $1.6 billion, an all-time record for lottery drawings in the U.S.

$1.6 billion can buy you a lot, like over 500 million Ted's hot dogs, over 450 million super mighty burritos, over 1 billion Paula's Donuts, and over 118 million large orders of spaghetti parmesan at Chef's.

If you don't want to spend all your money on those items and you have your sights set on something bigger, according to Forbes the 2018 valuation of the Buffalo Bills franchise is $1.6 billion, the same as the Mega Millions estimated jackpot.

The Bills made the playoffs last season, but other than that, Bills Mafia hasn't had much to get excited for over the last two decades.

Winning the jackpot would be your opportunity to buy the Bills and make the all the decisions you feel are necessary.

You'd have to find a partner once taxes get involved, but if Andy Dalton was able to throw a miraculous 49-yard touchdown pass on fourth down with 44 seconds left in the game to send the Bills to the playoffs for the first time in 17 seasons, anything is possible.
