Mega Millions is a popular multi-state lottery game played in 44 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. It is known for its large jackpots, which have reached as high as $1.537 billion. Mega Millions of drawings are held twice a week, on Tuesdays and Fridays, at 11 p.m. Eastern Time.
How to Play Mega Millions
To play Mega Millions, players must select six numbers: five numbers from a pool of 1-70, and one number (the “Mega Ball”) from a pool of 1-25. Players can choose their own numbers or opt for a quick pick, which randomly generates a set of numbers for them. Tickets can be purchased until 10:45 p.m. Eastern Time on the night of the drawing. The cost of a ticket is $2 per play.
Prizes and Odds of Winning
In addition to the jackpot, there are eight other prize tiers ranging from $2 for matching just the Mega Ball to $1 million for matching the first five numbers without the Mega Ball. The overall odds of winning a prize are approximately 1 in 24. If no one matches all six numbers to win the jackpot, the prize money is carried over to the next drawing.
