Luck is in the air in Michigan!

Michiganders are buying about 45,000 Mega Millions tickets per hour, according to a spokesperson from the Michigan Lottery. 

In fact, as of 4 p.m. Wednesday, Michiganders have purchased more than 450,000 Mega Million tickets.

If someone in Michigan wins the jackpot, they'll get a lump sum of $513 million. But the lottery would withhold 24 percent for federal income taxes and 4.25 percent for state income taxes.

After taxes, you'll be left with about $368 million. 

Mega Millions drawings take place each Tuesday and Friday evening. 

Good luck!
