If luck is on your side, all that cash, minus taxes, could be yours if you happen to pick all six winning numbers, which just happens to be a one-in-three-hundred-billion chance (1-in-300,000,000,000).

Mega Millions tickets can be purchased in 45 states, including Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma and Arkansas.
