I'm sure you know how the lottery works, but if not here's a quick rundown - people play the lottery, ultimately, for a chance to win the lottery jackpot, which (depending on the game) usually sits around eight figures, if not, more.

Every time the lottery's jackpot winnings go untouched (aka, nobody selects the winning jackpot numbers), the jackpot rises.

This week, the Mega Millions jackpot rose to a record-breaking $830 million - the third largest jackpot in Mega Millions history, according to the lottery.

While millions of people around the country will be playing (and praying) to win this beyond life-changing amount of money the Mega Millions is offering up, it's hard to not imagine what you'd do with the money if it actually were to become yours.
