What happens if you win the now $640M Mega Millions jackpot?

SACRAMENTO, CA -  Do you have your ticket yet? 

The clock is ticking for you to get your Mega Millions lottery ticket.  The jackpot now stands at a whopping $640 million. 

The drawing is set for Friday night at 8 p.m. PDT.  All together, 42 states are taking part in Mega Millions.  And the frenzy is growing about as fast as the jackpot itself.

So let's play into your fantasy and say you win it big.  What do you do next?  Albert Woodward, a certified financial planner, has some advice.

First, says Woodward, sign your name on the back of the lottery ticket.  Make yourself a copy, then place the ticket in a sandwich bag and immediately deposit the winning ticket in a bank safe deposit box.

Second, he said, call the telephone company and get an unlisted number.  Share that number with just close family members and your professional advisors.
