As the Mega Millions jackpot nears a record high, the founder of the Raising Cane restaurant chain buys tickets for all of the company’s 50,000 employees.

If any of the tickets hit the lucky numbers, the prize money would be shared among the workers. That would give everyone several thousand dollars based on current calculations, according to a statement.

Raising Cane founder Todd Graves said buying the tickets was a nice gift for the workers and could mean a pleasant surprise for everyone on Wednesday morning.

“Buying 50,000 lottery tickets is harder than you think! Hoping to share the winning jackpot with our 50,000 @RaisingCanes Crew,” Graves posted on Twitter.

Lottery officials raised the Mega Millions grand prize to $810 million on Monday, giving players a chance to win what would be one of the biggest jackpots in the country.

The next draw is Tuesday.
