While that seems a long way from The $1.34 billion dollar jackpot they started with, each winner will have enough money to buy several super yachts, or the most expensive mansion in Chicago four times over, as well as the top four most expensive diamonds ever sold at auction.

And now the winners have the task of deciding how they’re going to spend that money.
