If you're like us and could use 200 million bucks, then now might be a good time to drop some dough on a Mega Millions ticket.
   
The California Lottery announced the jackpot is up to one-fifth of a billion bucks in Friday night's drawing. If only one person ends up with the golden ticket, and that person takes the cash for the cash option, the lucky winner would walk away with  $128 million after taxes.

The last time anybody won Mega Millions -- on Aug. 28 -- the pot grew to $333,000,000.

Know what you'd do with all that cash? Leave us a comment and let us know.
