According to the Mega Millions website, no one picked the correct numbers leading to an 18th turn in the jackpot. It is now estimated to be $500 million dollars.

Initial Story
What would you do with a million dollars? Scratch that what would you do with over 300 million dollars?

Well, if you're the winner of tonight's Mega Millions drawing, you could answer that question.

For the past three months, the Mega Millions jackpot has turned over 17 times. And if you won the jackpot, you'd have two options: a single payment of 259 million dollars before taxes or 13 million a year for the next 26 years.

Pat Eubanks says "I'll tell you what I would do. I would pay off all my bills and all my children's bills and it would just be wonderful to be debt free and for my children to be debt free."

When you think of big money, a nice car comes to mind right? Mike Morris at Sunbelt Ford says you could actually get a couple.

Morris said as an example, if you pick out the Shelby Cobra that runs somewhere between 50 and 60 thousand dollars, they could probably buy about 260 of those so they could give it to a lot of friends and family.
