Mega Millions Introduction



Mega Millions began way back in 1996, when it was known as The Big Game. It is a multi-jurisdictional US lottery that can also be played online by players from around the world. The format has changed a number of times over the years, with the odds, number choices, and even the cost all changing, but you can find the latest rules in this guide.




How to Play Mega Millions



Mega Millions is drawn every Tuesday and Friday evening (US Eastern TIme), and tickets consist of 5 main numbers from 1 to 70 and 1 bonus ball (known as the “Mega Ball”) from 1 to 25. There is also something known as the "Megaplier", which increases non-jackpot winnings, and "Just the Jackpot", which allows players to pay less and focus only on the jackpot. Both of these options are only available to physical ticket holders in a handful of US states.

Mega Millions tickets cost €3.00.


Jackpots and Records



For a long time Mega Millions stood in the shadow of Powerball in terms of record jackpots, but this changed in 2018 when it paid out its biggest ever jackpot of $1.537 billion. This jackpot was “only” $50 million less than the largest ever Powerball jackpot, but it smashed the record for the largest ever single ticket win and it also became only the second ever jackpot to pass $1 billion.




There is a minimum jackpot of $40 million on Mega Millions and there is no maximum jackpot, which means it can keep on climbing if there are no winners. Mega Millions has consistently been one of the world’s biggest and best lotteries, paying 9 figure jackpots longer than any other. In fact, way back in the year 2000 it broke several records when it reached a jackpot of $363 million.




Winning Odds of Mega Millions



The Mega Millions has jackpot odds of 1 in 302 million, while the smallest prize, paid to players who get just the Mega Ball, returns odds of 1 in 37.
