It hit $800 million on Friday. The previous jackpot record was held by a 2012 MegaMillions game worth $656 million.

The current reached $700 million Thursday after nobody won the jackpot on Wednesday night — the 18th drawing without a winner.

The next drawing is on Saturday night.

This jackpot first broke into the top largest ranking last night ranking last weekend, when it hit $400 million, and ticket sales have continued to soar.

What would you do, if you won the lottery?

    This is always a fun question, but I never have been able to come up with a serious answer. It’s just mind-boggling to even consider that much money. Usually with money I give some to God’s work, put some away, and spend some. Become debt free and help others are right up there, but can’t even imagine specifics. What about you, BLW?

  4. I hope to be able to let you know what I do.
    And wish everyone good luck for the jackpot.

  5. Well, that might be tricky since I didn’t buy a ticket. But if I did, I would take our son out of school and travel the world. Oh, and I would give a lot to charity.

    I would get a big pile of all the money and burn it.

  7. Take time off to finish revising my novel.

    I’d become the philanthropist that most millionaires could be but choose to refuse.
