POLL: What Would You Do With Friday's $540M Jackpot?

Take our poll or tell us in the comments section on how that cash would change your life.

The multi-state Mega Millions lottery game has more than a half billion-dollar jackpot for Friday night’s draw.

Let that roll around on your tongue for a while... half a billion dollars. $540 million. Any way you phrase it, if you win the jackpot you better learn how to say “new tax bracket."

A recent Bloomberg report names Georgia residents as some of "the biggest suckers" in America.

Georgia resident spent $3.4 billion on lottery tickets over the past year. That averages $470.73 per adult -- 1% of their annual income. Its low rate of winning lottery payouts (62.9%) landed the state No. 1 on Bloomberg's "sucker index."

Friday's big jackpot could mean instant financial security for some lucky person and a chance at some serious philanthropy.

If a Northeast Cobb resident were to win the jackpot Friday, what would you like to that person do for their town? 

If you won, how would it change your life? Would you give to charities and different causes or become an entrepreneur?

One can dream, right? Take our poll below and share yours with us!
