A player wins the jackpot by matching all six winning numbers in a drawing. In fact, you would have a better chance of becoming President of the United States (10 million to 1), winning an Oscar (11,500 to 1), or even becoming an astronaut (12 million to one), than winning the Mega Millions. That sometimes leads to multiple winners who have to split the jackpot. Of course, there's a chance that you may have to share the jackpot with one or more people.

Sharing a big pot of cash isn't really a big deal - especially when the jackpot that stands at $393 million.

According to the game's official website, the odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 258,890,850.

The winning numbers in Friday's drawing were 23-33-53-56 and 58, with the Mega Ball of 6.
