Here are some very 'Atlanta' things you could do with $1.6 billion

While we're all eagerly awaiting watching our numbers come up, here are some of the very ATL things you could do with your winnings: 

Build your own Mercedes-Benz stadium ($1.5 billion). Winning team not included: The Falcons are worth nearly $2.5 billion. The Braves would also be slightly out of your budget at $1.625 billion. Good news for basketball fans, though: You can buy the Hawks for 'just' $1.15 billion. 

Buy each person in Georgia (10.43 million) 45 Chick Fil-A sandwiches ($3.40 each).

Buy Tyler Perry's Atlanta mansion, which sold in 2016 for $17.5 million -- 91 times. 

Stay in the luxury Mandarin Oriental Hotel's penthouse Mandarin Suite ($6090+ per night) for 720 years. 

Pay Falcons' quarterback Matt Ryan's salary ($30 million a year) for the next 53 years. Though that right arm may be a bit rusty by 2071.

Buy the nine most expensive homes sold in Atlanta last year and still have over a billion to spare. 

Buy at least 3 private Georgia barrier islands: Little Hawkins ($17.8 million), Bell and Cubbage Islands ($10 million) and Eagle Island ($1.9 million)... with a lot leftover for landscaping.

Make eight sequels to Atlanta-filmed 'Black Panther,' which had a monster budget of $200 million. Bonus: You'd also pocket a chunk of the roughly $1.3 billion gross revenue. 

We're sure that there are tons more ways to keep those billions right here in Georgia, but it's a start!
