Mega Millions jackpot up to $344 million

Posted: Updated:
SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

What would you do with $344 million? Retire? Tell no one? Tell the world?

The jackpot has now soared to its highest total of 2013.

Taken in a lump sum, the jackpot would be about $184 million after taxes.

Or, if you prefer to spread the payment out, you could get about $11 million per year for 30 years. After factoring in taxes, that total drops to around 7 or 8 million dollars per year.

In 2012 two separate winners split the jackpot, taking home over $200 million each.

The drawing is tonight at 11 p.m. If no one wins, the money gets rolled over to the next drawing.
