HOW TO PLAY:

PLAY BIG WITH MEGA MILLIONS®! It's the multi-state game with big play action! Jackpots start at $40 million and grow until they're won. Besides the jackpot, there are eight other ways to win when you play. Add on the Megaplier® for a chance to increase your non-jackpot prize winnings!
  • Fill in a Mega Millions® play slip by choosing five (5) different "white" numbers from 1 to 70, and one (1) Mega Ball "yellow" number from 1 to 25, or ask for a Mega Millions "Quick Pick" and let the computer pick your numbers for you.                 
  • 5 white balls and one yellow ball are drawn.

  • Each Mega Millions play slip contains 5 separate $2 wagers. Play all 5 wagers for $10. (Add the Megaplier® feature for $1 more per wager)

  • Buy tickets for future drawings with the "Advance Action" option, available for up to 26 drawings. Get 26 Advance Action plays for the price of 25.
