More About Mega Millions
Mega Millions is played across 45 states, Washington, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Drawn twice a week, this lottery often creates some of the world’s biggest jackpot winners. All you have to do is pick 5 main numbers and a Mega Ball and match them to win the big jackpot!
Mega Millions started in 1996 under the name, The Big Game. Initially, tickets were only sold in Michigan, Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey and Massachusetts. The format was similar to the Mega Millions we know today.
Now, the US Mega Millions lottery boasts nine prize divisions. Jackpot winners must match five winning numbers along with the Mega Ball. Partial matches entitle ticket holders to secondary cash prizes.
Winning numbers for Mega Millions are selected from a drum of 1 – 70 numbers and the Mega Ball, which is chosen from a separate drum of 1 – 25 numbers. This often helps ticket holders win third, fifth, seventh, and ninth categories.
Mega Millions also boasts a Megaplier option. When you check the Megaplier box when buying your tickets, you stand to multiply all your other prize division winnings anywhere from 2 to 5 times. Prizes from Mega Millions face both federal and MI taxes.
This exciting lottery set a work record in 2012 when three lucky winners scooped the $656 million jackpot. The winners from Illinois, Kansas, and Maryland remain the biggest Mega Millions winners to date. The Maryland winners worked in the public education system and after pooling their money in the draw, the “Three Amigos,” as they called themselves, became a lottery syndicate winner.
April 2020: New adjustments to the guaranteed starting jackpot and minimum jackpot roll: there will be no minimum jackpot increases between draws and the starting jackpot depends on ticket sales and interest rates.
