Mega Millions Lottery Tickets



Next Draw:
Tuesday 23rd October

Mega Millions is a multi-state lottery game in the USA which began as The Big Game lottery in 1996 with just six states participating. The modern Mega Millions game is played twice a week, on Tuesdays and Fridays, and boasts a starting jackpot value of $15 million. Mega Millions now has 45 states and jurisdictions participating and boasts some of the highest lottery jackpots in the world.

Mega Millions jackpots roll over to the following draw if nobody manages to match five main numbers plus the Mega Ball, and this means that jackpots worth hundreds of millions crop up again and again.

As Mega Millions lottery tickets can be purchased online, you can play for these multi-million dollar jackpots from virtually anywhere in the world!

Winning the Mega Millions jackpot requires players to correctly match five numbers from the main pool between 1 and 75 as well as the Mega Ball number between 1 and 15. The odds of achieving this are 1 in 258,890,850, which means rollover draws are pretty commonplace!

The biggest Mega Millions jackpot on record stands at $656 million jackpot and was won by three ticket holders in March 2012. While the Mega Millions top prize may elude many, each draw still creates hundreds of thousands of prize winners who manage to match just one or more numbers.

Mega Millions has nine prize tiers in total, and the overall odds of winning a Mega Millions prize are 1 in 15.
