There's beyond lifechanging money on the line in Tuesday night's Mega Millions drawing. The jackpot in New Jersey is currently at $244 million.

The cash payout, should you skip the annuity, would be $172.5M, according to New Jersey Lottery.

That kind of dough could rid you and your whole family of all your debt. It could buy you a mansion (or three). Heck, with those many zeroes you could probably score a small private island!
