CHICAGO (CBS) — Tonight’s Mega Millions jackpot could put a lot of presents under the tree.

$291 million worth of presents.

Or, if you take the lump sum cash option–$157 million.

Of course, you’ll have to pay state and federal taxes.

So, “only” about $110 million for people in Illinois, according to USAMega.com. ($112 million for folks in Indiana; $105 million in Wisconsin.)

The drawing is Friday night.

Make your list, buy your tickets … and good luck.
