Life Inc. – What to buy when you win the $640 million Mega Millions

Welcome to the 1 percent, hypothetical lottery winner. Here’s what you can buy with your winnings.

The Mega Millions lottery jackpot hit a record $540 million Thursday and by Friday it had climbed to $640 million with a lump sum option of $462 million.

If you’re lucky enough to beat the 1-in-176 million odds and win, the bad news is you won’t be able to take home that full amount. That’s because lottery officials will withhold 25 percent for federal gaming taxes, according to Arlen Harris of the Washington’s Lottery, which participates in the Mega Millions.

Still, you should be pretty well set for life.
