The lottery is on everyone's mind. It's on the news, it's the topic of conversation at work. Mega Millions once again has an enormous estimated jackpot, and we're all dreaming of walking away with the grand prize. Of course, the chances of winning the big money are not all that great, but there are several other ways to win prize money. 

According to Mega Millions, there are a variety of ways to win, outside of matching all the numbers and winning the grand prize: "Players may pick six numbers from two separate pools of numbers - five different numbers from 1 to 70 and one number from 1 to 25 - or select Easy Pick/Quick Pick. You win the jackpot by matching all six winning numbers in a drawing."

Personally, I'd be content with $1,000,000 second prize. Who am I kidding? If I won $200, I'd be thrilled. Best of luck to you in tonight's Mega Millions drawing!
