USA Mega Millions

This game is called MEGA Millions for a reason. It holds the world record for largest payout at a cash value of USD $474 million! The game starts with a USD $15 million and climbs from there with no cap on the payout. And the Megaplier option increases non-jackpot winnings by 2-5 times. The win odds are steep, hence the huge jackpots. But you only need to win once and you're set for multiple lifetimes. When you do win you can opt for either a lump sum payout or an annual annuity.

Draw format

Players may pick six numbers from two separate pools of numbers - five different numbers from 1 to 75 and one number from 1 to 15 - or select Easy Pick. You win the jackpot by matching all six winning numbers in a drawing. The jackpots start at $15 million and grow by a minimum of $5 million per draw each time the jackpot rolls.

What can I win?

Cash option: A one-time, lump-sum payment that is equal to all the cash in the Mega Millions jackpot prize pool. In addition to the jackpot, there are other prizes ranging from $1 to $1,000,000*.

* In California all prizes are pari-mutuel, meaning payouts are based on sales and the number of winners. All other MegaMillions states set the 2nd through 9th prizes at pre-determined amounts.
