First, there are taxes to pay. Yes, Uncle Sam will take a good chunk of change out of the windfall, but there will still be more than enough to enjoy.

The lump-sum payout is based on the cash value of the jackpot —$246,500,000. According to USA Mega, 25 percent is immediately withheld for federal taxes. So, that means $61,625,000 will be deducted from the payout, leaving you with a total cash payment of $184,875,000.

State taxes are also deducted from the jackpot amount. However, f you live in one of the following states —California, Delaware, Florida, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Washington and Wyoming — you will not have to pay state taxes on your Mega Millions lottery winnings.

The Mega Millions drawing takes place every Tuesday and Friday at 11 pm. Tickets are currently $1 each, but you can pay an additional $1 for the Megaplier feature. If you win a non-jackpot prize, the prize amount will be multiplied between 1x and 5x the original amount. #Money In The Bank
