How to Play

USA Mega Millions is the richest weekly lottery in the world, with a $656 Million record jackpot. It’s drawn on Tuesday and Friday nights at 2300 Easter Time. Players need to pick five main balls from 75 and one Mega Ball from 15, which is drawn from a separate machine. You need to match all 5 balls and the Mega Ball to win.

There are also 9 other prize levels and you can win the lowest prize level just by matching the Mega Ball on its own. The jackpot prize is paid out as 26 equal annual instalments or you can take the lump sum option, which is around a third lower than the advertised jackpot.
