Whoa, baby! $370 MILLION! If you perfectly pick all six winning numbers and decide to take the lump sum payout, you'll bank $254 million. You could buy your own island with that kind of cash and socially distance FOREVER!

CNBC.com has some advice for large-jackpot lottery winners, for example:

  • Guard your lottery ticket like your life depends on it. You'll want PROOF that you picked the winning numbers.
  • Take the lump sum instead of the annuity, which basically outs you on an allowance.
  • Chill. It can take up to half a year to receive your payout.
  • Remember, you have to pay taxes on lottery winnings. So, if you opt for the $254M payout, the IRS is coming for around $61 million of your jackpot.

So, how are your odds for winning all of this Friday's Mega Millions? Reportedly 1 in 302 million. But YOU could BE that ONE! Ya just gotta be in it to win it!

Personally, if I suddenly found myself $250 million richer, I'd book a guided to to Egypt, buy an apartment in Paris, a lemon grove on the Mediterranean coast of Italy, set up a string of no-kill animal shelters and endow my favorite local animal charities, and hire a driver. And a Life Coach. And a Drill Sergeant. And a Personal Assistant. But I'd still work. Yep, I would.

Good luck this Friday!

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
