Mega Millions Lottery – Play and Win Jackpot

What is Mega Millions?

Mega Millions Lottery was first established in 1996 as the Big Game, and was rebranded to Mega Millions in May 2002. It has a minimum jackpot of US$40 million but can frequently roll over to create jackpots worth hundreds of millions, which is one reason why it is one of the most popular lotteries in the USA.

When does the Mega Millions draw take place?

Mega Millions draws take place twice a week on Tuesday and Friday evenings at 23.00 ET. Each of the draws take place at the studios in Atlanta, Georgia and are aired on various television channels across America. On special occasions the draw for Mega Millions has taken place elsewhere; for example, Yolanda Vega, a New York Lottery official, called the winning numbers in a special draw in Times Square, New York on 6th March 2007.

Five balls are drawn from a set of balls numbered 1 through 70; one ball is drawn from a set of balls numbered 1 through 25.

You win if the numbers on one row of your ticket match the numbers of the balls drawn on that date.

There are nine ways to win a prize, from $2 to the jackpot. If no one wins the jackpot, the money is added to the jackpot for the next drawing. Overall chances of winning a prize are 1 in 24.

How to Play Mega Millions Lotto?

To play the Mega Millions lottery, you must pick five numbers between 1 and 70 and one additional number between 1 and 25. The additional number is known as the “Mega Ball.” The first five numbers do not have to be in any particular order.

A basic Mega Millions ticket costs $2. Most states also offer a “Megaplier” option, where you pay $1 per ticket to multiply any prize you win (other than the jackpot) by two, three, four, or five. The value of the Megaplier is drawn at random at the same time that the winning numbers are generated.

You have the option to choose your lottery numbers, or to do a “quick pick” to let the computer randomly generate the numbers you will play.

How to Win Mega Millions Lottery?

Mega Millions numbers are drawn from two drums, one containing 70 balls and one containing 25 balls.

The first five numbers are drawn from the first drum, and the Mega Ball is drawn from the second drum. A seventh number is then drawn, to determine the level of the Megaplier, from 2 through 5.

If your five numbers match the five drawn from the first drum in any order, and your Mega Ball matches the number drawn from the second drum, you’ve won the jackpot. You may also win a prize for matching a fewer number of balls, as outlined below.

If I win, how long do I have to claim a prize?

This varies from state to state and prize to prize, so players are advised to check with their local district for exact details. The claim period ranges from 90 days to 1 year and prizes remaining unclaimed will be retained by the winner’s state lottery to be added to the prize fund or donated to good causes.

How old do I have to be to play Mega Millions?

Age limits vary from state to state, with the maximum age limit being 21 in Arizona, Iowa and Louisiana. All players must be 18 or over to play online, but check with your local jurisdiction before playing if you are under 21.

What are the odds of winning a prize on Mega Millions?

The odds of winning a prize on Mega Millions are approximately 1 in 24 and the odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 302,575,350.
