Here's a few fascinating facts about Mega Millions.

For every $1,000,000 in the jackpot, you will receive approximately $38,500 per year before taxes.  So, if you won the 500 Million on Friday you would receive approx. $19,250,000 a year for 26 years (minus taxes)!  Cash option: A one-time, lump-sum payment that is equal to all the cash in the Mega Millions jackpot prize pool.
