If you're a Mega Millions ticket holder, then you should be gearing up for the Friday, Dec. 27 drawing for the lottery jackpot, which is currently $35 million.

The jackpot winner will have a choice of how they would like to be paid. They could choose the "Cash Option" and receive a one-time, lump sum payment of $18 million, or they can choose the "Annual Payout" option, which provides annual payments over a 26-year period, according to the Mega Millions website.

The overall odds of winning any prize are about 1 in 15, but the odds of winning the jackpot are about 1 in 259 million.

Mega Millions drawings take place every Tuesday and Friday after the draw entry closes at 10:45 p.m. EST. Tickets are sold in 42 states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The winning numbers are drawn at WSB-TV in Atlanta, Ga.

The Mega Millions winning numbers from the Dec. 24 drawing were 23, 34, 53, 58, 73 and the Mega Ball number was 2. There was no winner for the $22 million jackpot but two people won the $1 million prize. There were also 21 Match 4 + 1 winners who walked away with $5,000. Each $5,000 lottery winner matched four out of five white Mega Millions winning numbers, and the gold Mega Ball number.
