Most winners choose a cash prize, which for Mega Millions is $739.6 million.

Friday's winning numbers were 4, 26, 42, 50, 60 and Mega Ball 24.

The jackpot has been rolling since September 18, 2020, resulting in an estimated $970 million jackpot for the Friday, January 22 drawing.

On Wednesday, a winning Powerball ticket worth $731.1 million was sold in Allegany County, Maryland. All three correctly picked out every single one of the numbers, so the money was shared.

The figures may be adjusted depending on the value of tickets sold before the drawing.

The odds of winning a Mega Millions jackpot are incredibly steep at one in 302.5 million.

· Along with the grand prize victor, 10 tickets sold matched all five white numbers drawn to win $1 million. To put that into perspective, the odds of being killed by a vending machine (however that would happen) are just 1-in-112,000,000. And while it seems his path to White House was a hard one, his odds of becoming President of the United States were only 1-in-10,000,000. A player wins the jackpot by matching all six winning numbers in a drawing. Because after four months of a jackpot that topped out at $119 million way back on September 15, we got ourselves a new victor, and they're going to be far richer.

Mega Millions is played in all states except Hawaii, Alaska, Nevada, Utah and Alabama.
