How to Play Mega Millions

Mega Millions draws take place every Tuesday and Friday night in Atlanta, Georgia. Players must match five numbers from 1 to 70 and then a Mega Ball numbered from 1 to 25 to win the jackpot. There are eight other prize tiers, offering rewards from US$2 to US$1 million, and the overall chances of winning any prize are 1 in 24.

A Megaplier option is also available in most states for an additional US$1 fee. The Megaplier is a number from 2 to 5 which multiples non-jackpot prizes by 2, 3, 4 or 5 times. The prize for matching five numbers without the Mega Ball for instance, is fixed at US$1 million, but if the Megaplier number is 5 then the prize would be worth US$5 million for a winning player who had taken advantage of this option.

Players in some states can also opt for another feature called Just the Jackpot. The standard cost for one set of numbers is US$2, but anyone who plays Just the Jackpot will get two lines for US$3. They are only eligible to win the top prize, though, so if they match anything other than the full line they will not receive a payout.
