How do I play Mega Millions?
At midnight on every Tuesday and Friday, Mega Millions drawings take place. Although each ticket costs $2, you can add the Megaplier for $1, increasing your chance of winning up to five times the initial reward (except for the jackpot).
Each participant chooses one number from the range of 1 to 25 and five numbers between 1 and 70 for the white balls. However, you can also request that the lottery system choose a Quick Pick at random for you.
With the exception of California, prizes range from $2 for matching the Mega Ball to $1 million for matching all five white balls to the jackpot for matching all six balls. On the Mega Millions website, you can check out the total prize distribution.
You don’t have to be a citizen of the United States or a resident of the state where you buy your ticket.
