Between the Florida Lottery’s MEGA MILLIONS and POWERBALL jackpots, players will have a shot at winning a total of $842 million this weekend.

Each game begins at $20 million in winnings and continues rolling until the jackpot is won.

As of this week, that number is still rolling — to $432 million for the MEGA MILLIONS jackpot and $410 million for the POWERBALL jackpot.

Winners can get their payout in 30 annual installments or as a one-time lump-sum cash option, which comes out to $329.7 for MEGA MILLIONS and $316.4 million for POWERBALL.

Here’s a tip from the professionals: Sign the back of your ticket as soon as you purchase it, and keep it somewhere safe. You never know when you might hit the jackpot.

Do you play? What would you do with all that money?
