The MegaMillions jackpot has just reached its all-time high with $1 billion in store for the lucky ticket holder.

On Thursday, the jackpot stood at $970 million and on Friday morning, MegaMillions took to Twitter to break the news about its jackpot hitting $1 billion. Twitter users and hopeful billionaires took to the social media platform to ruminate about the news.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a $1 billion lottery without Dr. Evil memes:

In “Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery,” Mike Myers, as Dr. Evil, demanded $1 million, soon changing the ransom to $100 billion, in exchange for hostages.

In addition to the “Austin Powers”-inspired tweets, users also found other ways to joke about the MegaMillions jackpot, which you can see below:

The drawing for the MegaMillions jackpot takes place today at 11 p.m. EST.
