What is the Megaplier?

The Megaplier is an option that is currently offered in all states that sell Mega Millions tickets except California. For an extra $1.00 per ticket you can increase your non-jackpot prize winnings by 2, 3, 4, or 5 times.

The Megaplier is not available in California because of state law that requires all lottery prizes to be paid out on a pari-mutuel basis.

The Megaplier multiplier number is chosen at random by computerized drawing in Texas at around the same time the Mega Millions numbers are drawn in Georgia. The Megaplier was invented by the Texas Lottery as an add-on available only in that state, but was later available in all of the Mega Millions states except California starting in 2010. The Megaplier continues to be drawn in Texas.

A player must choose the Megaplier option when they buy their Mega Millions ticket, and then the ticket must match one of the 9 Ways to Win (except the jackpot) before the multiplier takes effect. Megaplier costs an extra $1 per play. See How to Play Mega Millions for more information.

How Can Players Bet on the Mega Millions Lottery?

The Mega Millions lottery is one of America’s major draws with its massive jackpots. To bet on this lottery, players simply have to choose five main numbers from 1 to 70 and one Mega Ball number from 1 to 25 to enter the drawings. Draws are held every Tuesday and Friday at 23.00 EAST. All Mega Millions prizes, apart from the jackpot, have a fixed value; the only exception is in California, where non-jackpot Mega Millions prizes are pari-mutuel.

The minimum Mega Millions jackpot is $40 million and there is no maximum limit for the jackpot. There is the possibility that the jackpot rolls over, which means that it increases because it is not won by any of the players. Whenever this happens, the top Mega Millions prize will increase by a minimum of $5 million for the next drawing.

Mega Millions prizes can reach great amounts. In fact, the largest Mega Millions jackpot was an astounding $1.537 billion, which was won in October 2018. Other massive jackpots date back to March 2012 and December 2013, where three ticket holders shared a staggering prize of $656 million, and another two ticket holders shared the sum of $648 million respectively.

It got its current name in the middle 2002 of the year. The smallest jackpot is twelve million, but since the fund is often transferred from one circulation to another, then in case of winning, the luckiest player can get several hundred million dollars in winnings.

Megamillions game rules

The player must choose five main balls (number range - 1-75) and one additional or "mega ball" (range of numbers 1-15).

All states (excluding California) each consolation category has a standard win rate. Why "excluding California"? The thing is, that in California itself, the size of the winnings actually depends on the percentage of sales. The player who wins the jackpot can either pick it up immediately (but at the same time he does not receive the entire amount), or get your prize in parts according to the following scheme – for every million won, the player is paid 38 and a half thousand dollars a year.

What can you win in the game "Megamillions"?

Smallest jackpot, possible in this game, is equal 12 million dollars. If after the end of the drawing there is more than one ticket holder with a winning combination, the reward is divided between these lucky ones.

It happens, that none of the players guesses any number 5 main balls, no "mega-ball" numbers. How to be in this case? In this case, the rules of the game provide for the possibility of transferring the entire amount of the jackpot to the fund, which will be drawn in the next draw.

And now some records from the game "Megamillions". Who won the highest amount? The largest amount in America was won by three (!) players. They divided among themselves just an astronomical amount - 656 million dollars!!! But sometimes people literally dig up treasures alone.. It happened, eg, with the player, who was able to buy a winning ticket in New York and receive as a reward 319 000 000 dollars. This momentous event happened 25 Martha 2011 of the year.

What are the prize categories, and what are the chances of winning?

As, according to the rules, players need to guess the numbers of five balls from the range "1-75" and one ball from the range "1-15", then the probability of a player winning in one of the prize categories is 6,8%

"Megaplier" - what is it?

Do not forget about such an element as well., like a ball called "Megaplier". This is the name of a special ball, which can increase the winnings of especially lucky Megamillions lottery players.

As mentioned above, this ball is played in all states, except California. By the rules of the game, the ball is chosen from the numbers "2", "3" or "4" and gives a strong increase in the player's monetary reward. For clarity, let's give an example: if you managed to guess four numbers of the main balls and the number of the additional ball "Megaplier", then in this case the size of your winnings may grow, eg, from one and a half hundred dollars to six hundred dollars.

How are the draws held?

Two lottery machines are used in the Mega Millions draw. Model, выбранная организаторами Мега Миллионов — Критерион II (Criterion II), manufactured by Smartplay International (Smartplay International), located in Edgewater Park, state of new jersey. The balls are mixed by two counter-rotating blades. 5 white balls one by one fall into the hole under the stirring drum. Beginning with 19 October 2013 of the year participates in the drawing 75 white balls in the first apparatus and 15 Mega Balls, painted gold, in the second apparatus.

Why is the cash option different than the advertised jackpot?

The Mega Millions jackpot is an estimated 29-year annuity value, with a total 30 payments (the first payment happens right away, followed by 29 annual payments). When players choose
the annuity option for their prize, the state lottery pays the prize out over 29 years (30 payments) by
buying U.S. Government Treasury Securities, which earn interest and mature annually over
the 29 years. That annual return is the amount the winners receive each year for the
29 year period. With the cash option, the state lottery will take the amount of
money that would have been invested and will pay it directly to the winner in one
payment. Both payment options have federal and applicable state taxes deducted
from them, although with an annuity option you pay taxes gradually on each annual payout, not all at once like with the cash option.

If I should win the jackpot, do I have the option of remaining anonymous as far as the public and the media are concerned?

In most states, lottery winner information is public domain, therefore it is public information.
Publicized information normally includes the jackpot winner’s name, city, county, game in which they won,
date won, and the amount of the prize.

After you win the jackpot, we recommend seeking the professional guidance of a good lawyer and accountant to see if there are ways of maintaining as much privacy as possible— before contacting the lottery and/or claiming the prize, and possibly even before letting friends or family know. You may be tempted to yell to the rooftops in glee about your newfound fortune, but you will probably end up regretting that decision once the excitement of the win calms down, and you are left with a continuous stream of lawsuits and requests for money from those who want a piece of your win.
