If one winning ticket matches all six numbers in Friday nights drawing and the player has selected annuity payments over 26 years, the $230 million jackpot would amount to pre-tax payments of roughly:
$8.84 million per year;
$170,100 per week; or
$24,300 per day!
For those who prefer to take their cash winnings up-front, its a pretty nice payday as well. If one lucky cash-option player matches all six winning numbers, he or she will take home a check for approximately $136.1 million (before taxes), the estimated present cash value of Fridays $230 million jackpot!
