Friday's Mega Millions jackpot is now $393

Earlier this week, the Mega Millions jackpot hit an estimated $382 million after no tickets matched all six numbers drawn.

It's the first time US lottery players have a choice of games with jackpots topping $300 million, according to CNBC.

Since June 10, six Powerball tickets have won $2 million each, including a ticket sold in Paola for the drawing last Saturday.

The drawing for the whopping jackpot will be held on Friday and would be the largest since July 8, 2016.

While no one has won the Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots, a lucky ticket holder in the Heights struck it rich.

The jackpot for Friday's drawing is worth a $393 million annuity value or a $238.3 million cash prize.

So, what are your odds of winning either of the two prizes?

1 in 75 quadrillion.

The combined jackpots for this week's Mega Millions and Powerball drawings stands at a combined annuity value of $738 million, according to Pennsylvania Lottery officials.

To put that in perspective, those odds are about 6,000 times worse than the odds experts have calculated of being killed by a meteorite strike - at the same time you're being attacked by a shark.
